I am at the AMSAT booth inside a hangar at the Palm Springs Hamfest,
getting ready for this event to officially start at 9am/1700 UTC. So
far, I am planning a couple of demonstrations for the start of the
event, from outside the hamfest site (Palm Springs Air Museum)...

AO-73 at 1656 UTC (8.56am PST - around the time the hamfest starts)
FO-29 at 1731 UTC (10.31am PST)

These demonstrations will be done in front of the museum, near the
US Navy A-6 Intruder on display. The FO-29 demonstration wil be done
using one FT-817ND and my Elk log periodic antenna, and I plan on
using 145.930 MHz (+/-) as my uplink for the 1731 UTC pass.

There will be other demonstrations during the day. Where possible, I
will try to post those mentions here on the -BB, but looking at my
@WD9EWK Twitter feed is probably a better way to go. If you don't use
Twitter, not to worry - just look at it in a web browser at:


Thanks in advance, and 73!
