I will have an AMSAT table at the Cochise Amateur Radio Association's Cochise
Hamfest in Sierra Vista, Arizona, on Saturday, 2 May 2015. The hamfest will be
at the club's Green Acres field, along Moson Road south of Arizona route 90,
to the east of the center of Sierra Vista and Fort Huachuca. The hamfest opens
officially at 7am (1400 UTC), but sellers and exibitors are usually allowed in
earlier. More information about the hamfest is available at:
WD9EWK will be on various satellite passes during the morning, demonstrating
amateur satellite operating for the hamfest crowd. Demonstrations should also
include ISS passes, where I can attempt to complete QSOs via APRS messages.
For the ISS passes, I will use WD9EWK-9 as my call. If you hear me on a pass,
please call and be a part of the demonstrations. After the hamfest, I will
upload my QSOs to Logbook of the World. For those interested in a QSL card to
confirm a contact with WD9EWK, please e-mail me directly with the QSO details.
If you're in the log, I will send out a QSL card. No need to first send me
your QSL card and/or SASE.
Throughout the morning, I hope to be able to send photos and other updates via
Twitter, using my @WD9EWK feed. If you do not use Twitter, you can still see
these photos and updates by pointing your web browser to:
Thanks, and 73!
