Hi Tim!

The hamfest site was on the east side of the Phoenix metro area, with some
mountains only a few miles to the east.  The 1445 UTC AO-51 pass was low
at 11 degrees maximum elevation, and I had some difficulty getting through,
but it was nice to hear you and it appears your satellite station is making
great progress.

I still have to go through the audio recordings from yesterday and update my
log, but I know we had lots of activity on those two passes.  A couple of
Mexicans, a maritime-mobile station in the eastern Pacific, and lots of US
stations from all across the country.  We were also visited by FM satellite
"regulars" Ron W6ZQ from southern Arizona and Brock W6GMT as he heads
out to Minnesota for the next few months.  Brock stuck around the AMSAT
table for much of the morning, talking with me and my two partners at the
table (Gerry VE4GTB/KD7MDB, Larry W7LB) and also answer questions
from those wandering by.
