I will have an AMSAT booth at the Scottsdale Amateur Radio
Club's SpringFest hamfest on Saturday morning, 18 March
2017. The hamfest will be held at the Mountain Valley campus
of Scottsdale Bible Church on Perimeter Drive, west of the
AZ-101 freeway exit 36, and north of Princess Drive, in
Scottsdale, Arizona. This is a half-day hamfest, since
everyone has to clear out of the church's parking lot by
1pm (2000 UTC). The hamfest officially starts at 8am (1500
UTC), but I expect people to be roaming around the parking
lot before sunrise. More information about the hamfest is
available at:


I plan on doing a series of on-air demonstrations of satellite
operating during the morning as WD9EWK. There are a bunch of
passes for FM, SSB, and packet operations that I could show up
on. If you hear or see WD9EWK on a pass Saturday morning,
please call and be a part of the demonstrations. Any QSOs
attempted via NO-84 and the ISS will also use WD9EWK as my
call sign, without the -9 SSID I have used for demonstrations
in the past. All QSOs made during the hamfest will be uploaded
to Logbook of the World after the hamfest. If you'd like a QSL
card for a QSO, please e-mail me directly with the QSO details.

During the hamfest, I will post updates from the hamfest, along
with photos, on my @WD9EWK Twitter account. If you want to see
these updates and you do not use Twitter, do not worry. You can
use a web browser to follow along, at:


Thanks in advance, and 73!
