I will be part of the AMSAT presence at the ARRL Nevada State
Convention, also known as NVCON, this Friday through Sunday
(31 March - 2 April 2017) in Las Vegas. The convention will
be at the Eastside Cannery Casino-Hotel along Boulder Highway,
east of the Strip and southeast of downtown Las Vegas. More
about the convention is available at:


Frank Kostelac N7ZEV, a long-time AMSAT Area Coordinator in
Las Vegas, and I will be around the AMSAT booth at the convention.

Weather permitting, I will have some demonstrations of satellite
operating from outside the hotel during the convention. If you
hear WD9EWK on the satellites from NVCON, please call and be a
part of the demonstrations! Last year's NVCON weekend was a wet
one, with a lot of rain that washed out any chances to do
demonstrations during the convention. This weekend is supposed
to be better, and drier. The convention site is in grid DM26.

Any QSOs made during the convention will be uploaded to Logbook
of the World. If you would like to receive a QSL card for a QSO
with WD9EWK during NVCON, please e-mail me directly with QSO
details. If you're in the log, I will send a card.

During the convention, I will tweet photos and updates on my
@WD9EWK Twitter account. These tweets are available for anyone to
see, even if you don't have a Twitter account, at:
