I will be at the Kingman Hamfest in northwestern Arizona on Saturday,
6 November 2010. This is a two-day event, but I will not be there for
day one on Friday (5 November). During Saturday, I will be there with
an AMSAT table and on the satellites as WD9EWK for demonstrations using
FM and SSB. This hamfest is supposed to run all day on Saturday, and -
if there are crowds there all day - I will be there. The hamfest is
in grid DM25xf, not far from the DM25/DM35 grid boundary in another
part of Kingman.
Depending on when the hamfest wraps up, there may be a possibility of
post-hamfest satellite activity from either the DM25/DM35 grid boundary
or maybe a quick drive over the new bridge near Hoover Dam from somewhere
in southern Nevada. One way to figure out where I will be operating from
is with APRS:
This will be a quick trip, and I plan on returning home late Saturday
evening. Before heading home, I hope to be on passes in the evening.
Possibly for SO-50 passes, and maybe as late as SO-67 and/or VO-52
passes. Since APRS coverage is pretty good in much of Arizona, the
aprs.fi link above should be the best guide to my whereabouts for those
For anyone working WD9EWK at the hamfest or anywhere else after the
hamfest, there is no need to first mail me a QSL request or SASE.
Please e-mail me directly with the QSO details. If you are in the
log, I will send you a QSL card (or cards).
