I will be at the Cochise Amateur Radio Association's annual Larry
Warren Hamfest on Saturday (5 May) morning in Sierra Vista, Arizona.
This, like most Arizona hamfests, is a half-day event, and I will
have an AMSAT table there along with on-air satellite demonstrations.
More information about the hamfest is available at:
It looks like I will have only AO-7 in mode B and VO-52 available
for the demonstrations Saturday morning. I will be ready for those
two satellites with my portable all-mode satellite station.
After the hamfest, depending on when things wrap up, I am looking
at paying a quick visit to one or two of the rarely-heard grids
in southeastern Arizona. Or I might try to work from along I-10
at the Arizona/New Mexico state line. To see where I'm going, I
will run APRS as WD9EWK-9 while driving. You can see my travels
at (among other places) http://aprs.fi/wd9ewk-9
If you work WD9EWK on Saturday - at the hamfest, or wherever I stop
after the hamfest - and would like a QSL card to confirm the contact,
please e-mail me the QSO details. No need to send me a card or SASE
first. If you're in the log, I will be happy to send you a card. I
will also upload my Saturday QSOs to Logbook of the World.
