If y'all heard the distant sound of slapping one's forehead in astonishment from the West Coast of the U.S. this weekend, well, it was your AMSAT reps at the annual PACIFICON ham conference in Sam Ramon, California.
Why the surprise? Because an AMSAT area coordinator was there giving an AMSAT presentation ... and bumped into a fellow AMSAT devotee in the hallway who had a Martha Kit of AMSAT gear to sell.
Uh, why didn't "we" know each was going to be there??? (grin)
Area coordinators have their Web page to post our presentations and demos. Is there another site where AMSAT volunteers post when they are working events as an "AMSAT vendor?"
And if so, maybe it should all be combined into one? If I knew an AMSAT vendor table was going to be there, I could have blocked off some hours to work it - to relieve the main crew.
ANYWAY, I bought a great goldenrod-colored ARISSat-1 t-shirt. But please be forewarned - they are sized on the "small" side - so order your own a size larger than you normally wear!
