Thanks to all who called and worked K7UGA on 4 different 
passes today - an SO50 pass, two AO27 passes, and an 
AO7 pass. There was a large Friday crowd at the Yuma 
hamfest, which is also the ARRL Southwestern Division
Convention this year. An even larger crowd is expected

I have to give a special thank-you to several members
of Red Digital del Noroeste (Northwest Digital Network),
a radio club based in Mexicali, Baja California, an hour
west of Yuma. They have helped greatly with my
demonstrations and manning the AMSAT table in
the main hall. They will be back with me tomorrow. You
can read more about this club at http://www.xe2dnn.org
(use a site like http://translate.google.com/ if you don't
read Spanish to translate the site)

I hope to work several passes during the day tomorrow.
Please call K7UGA if you hear me on those passes
The hamfest ends at 5pm (0000 UTC) tomorrow afternoon,
followed by a big barbecue dinner. :-)  I also have more
videos that I will post on YouTube in a few days from 
the hamfest.
