I will have an AMSAT table at the new Tucson Hamfest and Fly-In,
hosted by the Oro Valley Amateur Radio Club. The hamfest will be
next Saturday, 6 October 2012, between 0700 and 1300 local time
(1400-2000 UTC). This hamfest will be at a new location northwest
of Tucson, at the Marana Regional Airport along Avra Valley Road
west of I-10 exit 242. More information is available at:
I will have on-air demonstrations throughout the hamfest, starting
with an SO-50 pass just before the official 1400 UTC start of the event.
I will work passes on that satellite, as well as VO-52 and FO-29, until
an AO-27 pass just before the 2000 UTC end of the hamfest. For the SSB
satellites, I will try to start out around 10 kHz +/- above the center
of the transponder. If you hear WD9EWK on those passes, please call and
be a part of the demonstrations. The hamfest site is in grid DM42jj.
If you work WD9EWK next Saturday and would like to receive a QSL card,
please e-mail me with the QSO details. QSOs will also be uploaded to
Logbook of the World after the hamfest.
