I couldn't agree more. Add to all you and the others have said, Patrick is a
great Elmer. I first met him at WestFest in Glendale back in January and his
demo convinced me that I wanted to work the birds.  He's been a great help
to me as I learn the ropes of working satellites. He always has the time to
answer my questions (and anticipate a few as well.

He's gonna be blushing when he get back home......:)

BTW, you're a pretty strong voice as well.

We have to create a "Hardest Workin' AMSAT Member" award, and give the first
one to Patrick. When I perform my demos, he's ALWAYS out there. When he
slides into his car, he is ALWAYS stopping alongside a highway to work a
satellite. (Did you see the video he posted yesterday? He is LITERALLY
stopped alongside a highway just to work a bird for our benefit.)

I have seen him in action at a hamfest in Arizona ... I hope some of his
energy and enthusiasm rubs off on us all.

I am working on my PACIFICON presentation for this weekend in Sam Ramon, CA.
Tentative passes to work while there are ...
