Later this week, I will have an AMSAT table at the Yuma (Arizona)
Hamfest & Emergency Preparedness Show:


on Friday and Saturday, 19-20 February 2010.  The hamfest is at the
Yuma County Fairgrounds - east of downtown Yuma, south of the I-8
freeway, and just north of Yuma International Airport and Marine
Corps Air Station Yuma:


Last year's event drew hams from all over Arizona and southern 
California, along with the "snowbird" population spending their
wintertime in the Yuma area and along the nearby Colorado River.  Many
Mexican hams from the neighboring Mexican states of Baja California 
and Sonora also visited the hamfest and the AMSAT table I had there 
last year.

During these two days, I will have on-air demonstrations using various
satellites (AO-51, SO-50, AO-27, VO-52, possibly AO-7 in mode B) using
my callsign WD9EWK if I am able to get away from the table and go outside
the main hall at the hamfest.  The hamfest site is in grid DM22qq.
