Depending on weather, QRM/QRN, and AO-7, I hope to be on the AO-7 pass around 2025 UTC this afternoon from outside the ARRL Centennial Convention in Hartford (grid FN31ps). I will use my two FT-817NDs and Elk log periodic antenna, and should have a nice audience listening to wrap up AMSAT's training seminar today. This is an 81-degree pass for Hartford, which should be good for us to deal with the buildings around the convention site.
I have been sending out photos and other comments from today's training seminar via Twitter. You can see them on my @WD9EWK Twitter feed, or visit http://twitter.com/WD9EWK using a web browser if you don't use Twitter.
We are hoping for more demonstrations during Friday and Saturday. Due to the buildings here in the center of Hartford, we will look to try for higher passes instead of trying to work shallow passes. I will try to post advance notice of other demonstrations here, as well as my Twitter feed I mentioned above.
