Thanks for the compliments. I can't take full credit for how well the AMSAT presence was in Yuma, with Rick K7TEJ spending a lot of the weekend helping at the booth and his demonstration of NO-44 on Saturday morning. With over 1000 attendees from all over, the AMSAT message was definitely being received out there.
This is the sort of thing I enjoy doing, as part of my support for AMSAT. I'm not a "rocket scientist", so I don't help in building the satellites. I've attended an average of around 10 events a year representing AMSAT since becoming an Area Coordinator in late 2006. There are a bunch of us who are in the field representing AMSAT at all sorts of events, and (putting my Director of Field Operations cap on now) I can always use more. :-)

Good job Patrick! I do know that it is a huge help to AMSAT and all the satellite community. There are a lot of ham interested in the satellite operation and some of them for any reason never have started. They just need one more motivation and you are giving it to them.
