On Saturday, 30 May 2009, I will have an AMSAT table at the hamfest
in Prescott, Arizona.  This hamfest is a joint venture between the
Yavapai Amateur Radio Club and Verde Valley Amateur Radio Association,
and will be held at the Granite Mountain Middle School in Prescott
(grid DM34sn).  The hamfest runs from 0800 to 1300 local (1500-2000
UTC).  More information about the hamfest is available at:


During the hamfest and before it officially opens, I will have
demonstrations on FM satellite passes as well as VO-52.  You may
hear me on as early as 1300 UTC, even if I have nobody listening
to the pass at my station except for me. 

After the hamfest, as I have typically done in the past year or
so, I will make a long drive back home.  I hope to make it as 
far north as grid DM36 for the AO-51 passes Saturday evening
(somewhere on the south rim of the Grand Canyon, inside Grand
Canyon National Park), and may be on AO-27 and/or SO-50 from 
grids DM34 and/or DM35 after the hamfest on my way toward grid

If you work WD9EWK on Saturday, either from the Prescott Hamfest
or from some other location later in the day, I will be happy to
send you a QSL card (or cards) to confirm the contact(s).  Please
e-mail me directly the details for each QSO, and - if you're in 
the log - I will mail you the card(s).  No need to send me QSLs
or SASEs for my activity on Saturday.
