AMSAT area coordination Clint Bradford K6LCS will again be 
attending and demonstrating working ham satellites with minimal 
equipment at the third annual Desert Radio Amateur Transmitting 
Society's HamFest on Saturday, January 28, 2012.

"Although we have recently lost two FM ham satellites - AO-51 and 
ARISSat-1 - we still have "easy birds" of AO-27, SO-50, and the 
ISS to work with minimal equipment," Clint reports.

"We have tentative passes of AO-27 and SO-50 in the afternoon 
to work during the Hamfest."

If you are interested in working one of these passes with Clint, 
download his four-page tutorial with frequency tables at ... 


Clint will have info at his table on working the satellites with just your 
handheld radio, as well as info about the upcoming ARISS project in 
April: students at Riverside's Flabob Airport are gearing up to speak 
with an astronaut aboard the ISS.
