I will have an AMSAT booth at the Yuma (Arizona) Hamfest later
this week, on Friday and Saturday (14-15 February 2014).  This
will be the 6th year I have made the trip to Yuma to host an 
AMSAT booth.  The AMSAT booth will be in the main hall at the
hamfest site, the Yuma County Fairgrounds - south of the I-8
freeway, across the street from Yuma International Airport and
Marine Corps Air Station Yuma.  More information about the 
hamfest is available at:


During the hamfest, Friday afternoon and all day Saturday, 
WD9EWK will be on various satellite passes from outside the 
main hall.  Yuma is in grid DM22, for those interested in grids 
via satellite.  Please call me if you hear WD9EWK on the passes, 
and be a part of the satellite demonstrations.  Not knowing if I 
can get outside for every possible pass during the hamfest, I will
try to post updates to this mailing list of when I will be on the air.
I should not have a problem with weather out there, as it could 
reach 91F/33C on Saturday afternoon.  In mid-February!  Also 
keep an eye on my Twitter feed @WD9EWK - or use 
http://twitter.com/WD9EWK if you aren't on Twitter - as I can 
quickly post updates that way from my mobile phone.  

I will upload all QSOs made from the Yuma Hamfest to Logbook
of the World.  Please e-mail me directly with QSO details if you 
would like to receive a WD9EWK QSL for our QSO.  No need to 
send me a card or SASE.  The printer at home is ready to print
some QSL cards.  :-) 

Thanks, and 73!
