I will have an AMSAT table at the Cochise Amateur Radio Association's
Larry Warren Hamfest in Sierra Vista AZ this Saturday (4 May).  The
hamfest starts at 0700 local time (1400 UTC), running until the prize
drawing at noon (1900 UTC).  The hamfest is at the club's Green Acres
Field, east of Sierra Vista and the Fort Huachuca base on Moson Road, 
south of AZ-90 in grid DM41.  More information about the hamfest is 
available at:


During the hamfest, WD9EWK will be on various satellite passes for
demonstrations to the hamfest crowd.  Please call if you hear WD9EWK
on the pass.  For the SSB satellites, I tend to start out about 10 
kHz above the center of the transponder.  All QSOs will be uploaded 
to the Logbook of the World after the hamfest.  If you would like to 
receive a WD9EWK QSL card, please e-mail me directly with the QSO 
details.  No card or SASE is required. 

After the hamfest, I will drive to some of the rarely-heard grids
near the Arizona/New Mexico border.  If traffic and weather cooperate,
I hope to operate from the DM51/DM52 and/or the DM52/DM53 boundaries.
A good way to see where I am located is APRS, looking for WD9EWK-9:


In addition to APRS, I will try to post updates to my Twitter feed
(@WD9EWK) during Saturday from the hamfest and wherever else I 
operate from.  For those not on Twitter, this is also available at:
