Well, if WE were running the Web site ... (grin)
Info is "buried" in the "HF INFO" button on the menu bar. I neglected to
click on it, because I thought it was info for working HF. NO - it's
an abbreviation for "HamFest."
Some of the presentations ...

1 PM - April Moell (WA6OPS) - Making Your List and Checking It Twice
A check list to help your group provide Amateur Radio support for local hospitals
(or any other disaster preparedness). The Hospital Disaster Support
Communications System (HDSCS) hdscs.org is a group of about 80 Amateur
Radio ("ham") operators who have volunteered to provide backup internal and
external communications for critical medical facilities in Orange County, California
whenever normal communications are interrupted for any reason. In 2010,
HDSCS celebrated its 30th year of service.
2 PM - Kate Hutton (K6HTN) - The National Traffic System (NTS)
The National Traffic System (NTS) has been relaying short text messages, called
radiograms, throughout the US and Canada since the 1940s. We have recently
been undergoing some major changes. In addition to the "traditional" traffic nets,
we now also have some modern tools, including automatic digital message
forwarding on Pactor (NTSD) & radio email via WinLink2000 (WL2K)
10:25AM - Clint Bradford, K6LCS, will attempt to work satellite SO-50 as it flies
directly over our event Saturday, March 15. The satellite pass only lasts for approx
