Are you looking for a good excuse to visit the 2013 AMSAT Symposium in Houston?

It is with great pleasure that I announce the return of Hector
Martinez, CO6CBF, to the AMSAT Symposium. Last year, Hector’s
presentation on “Cuban style” satellite operation was well-received by
the attendees. Don’t miss this year’s!

Since his visit to Orlando, Hector has been busy in Cienfuegos
completing his fundamental university studies. As the recipient of
the “Gold Award,” he was honored for his diligence by the university’s
rector. He now looks forward to continuing his education in a
Master’s program.

The AMSAT-NA Board of Directors has graciously extended Hector an
invitation to the Symposium following his successful presentation in
Orlando last year. This year’s process to obtain US visa approvals
went smoothly and on schedule due to the guidance and experience of
Patrick, WD9EWK.

Hector’s travel expenses are guaranteed by private donations - not
AMSAT-NA. If you wish to contribute please contact Clayton, w5pfg at
arrl dot net. You may also contact W5PFG via postal mail at the FCC
callbook-listed PO BOX. Clayton is Hector’s formal sponsor and
coordinator for this year’s symposium visit.

I wish to personally thank the AMSAT-NA Board of Directors and
especially recognize Patrick, WD9EWK, for supporting Hector’s
opportunity to present in Houston this year.

Hector is a great guy, and very creative with his station and equipment.

I had the pleasure of working him earlier this yar.
