I would like to suggest to the Las Cruces community to research the possibility of creating at one of the high schools a classroom set aside for students in either High school & Junior High who have interests in the satellite communications field. There are a wealth of active and retired individuals who would love the opportunity to construct and have donated equipment for satellite operations. There are numerous careers that can be created from the installation (electrical and woodworking) to electrical equipment maintenance to real time operations. I am sure that Holloman, WSMR and Ft Bliss would have equipment that can be sold or donated to the schools for the purpose of being re-used. Also offer to the neighboring towns and schools if there are students interested in spending 2 Saturdays a month to perform routine satellite communications activities. Since looking into a separate building could be too costly, the use of 1 of the schools for weekend use would serve both the community and give an opportunity for those retired in the field to share their experiences. Let's try to see if this has support and begin creating various committees to see this idea and project through. All of the schools can create a single club for fund raising efforts as well as active and retired workers to help out. I for one permitting time from my work schedule would be willing to assist.
