I will have an AMSAT table at the Radio Society of Tucson's "Desert-
Fest '09" hamfest on Saturday, 3 April 2009, in Tucson AZ.  The 
hamfest is at the Kino Sports Complex, east of the I-10 freeway on 
Ajo Way - the same location as the Old Pueblo Radio Club's hamfest
in October.  The hamfest opens at 0600 local (1300 UTC), and goes
until 1130 local (1830 UTC).  More information about the hamfest can
be found at:


During the hamfest, WD9EWK will be on FM satellites and VO-52 for
demonstrations during those passes.  This hamfest is located in 
grid DM42me.  If you hear me on any of those passes, please give me
a call.  I always appreciate stations that show up and call me 
during these events, as that makes the demonstrations a success for
those watching and listening to the activity on the radio.  

After the hamfest, depending on my work scheduling for the weekend,
I *may* be able to travel away from Tucson to either the DM51/DM52
or DM52/DM53 grid boundaries in southeastern Arizona.  This will 
probably be a "game time" decision, and I will post my intentions 
here once I am certain I will - or will not - have to return to 
Phoenix to work on Saturday evening.  

Thanks in advance, and 73!
