I will have an AMSAT table at the Thunderbird Amateur Radio Club's hamfest on Saturday, 10 January 2015, in Phoenix AZ. The hamfest will be at the Northwest Community Church, on 43rd Avenue between Greenway and Bell Roads in north Phoenix. Not too far from either the I-17 or AZ-101 freeways. More information about the hamfest is available at:
During the hamfest, WD9EWK will be on various passes for on-air demonstrations of satellite operating. I also plan on trying ISS and/or NO-44 passes using my TH-D72A HT, along with FO-29 and (hopefully!!!) AO-73 around 1300-1900 UTC. If you hear me on a pass, please call and be a part of the demonstration. If you see me on the ISS digipeater or NO-44 in packet, please note that I will only be able to see APRS messages from similar radios or software like UISS. I will try to use those messages to complete QSOs with anyone on those passes. All QSOs made at the hamfest will be confirmed via ARRL's Logbook of the World. QSL cards will also be available - please e-mail me with QSO details, and I will send a card if you're in my log.
