I will have an AMSAT table at the Superstition Amateur Radio Club's 
annual hamfest on Saturday morning, 3 December 2011.  This hamfest 
is in the southwestern parking lot of Mesa Community College, along
the east side of Dobson Road between Southern Avenue and the US-60 
freeway's exit 177 in Mesa AZ.  More information about the hamfest 
is available at: http://wb7tjd.org/hamfest/

During the half-day event, WD9EWK will be on satellites for on-air
demonstrations.  AO-7 should be in mode B, and there will be passes
on SO-50 and VO-52 that I should be able to work.  If you hear me on 
those passes, please free free to give me - and the hamfest crowd - 
a call.  

For AO-7 and VO-52, I tend to start out about 10 kHz above the center 
of the passband, +/- for other activity and QRM.  If I hear no responses
to my CQ calls, I will move around and try to work whoever I hear on the
passband.  Maybe even in CW. The hamfest officially starts at 0530 local 
time (1230 UTC), and I hope to be set up to work passes starting around 
that time.  

As with my other satellite activities, I will be happy to confirm QSOs
made during these demonstrations.  I will upload the QSOs to LOTW 
shortly after the hamfest, and will mail out QSL cards for anyone 
wishing to receive one.  There is no need to first send me a card and 
SASE - just e-mail me the QSO details.  If you are in the log, I will 
mail a card out to you.
