AMSAT will be part of the University of Arizona's K7UAZ Amateur Radio
Club booth at the 2015 Science City/Tucson Festival of Books, on the
main mall of the University of Arizona in Tucson on Saturday, 14 March
2015. This is a large science fair held yearly in Tucson, and AMSAT is
happy to support the K7UAZ club. This is a two-day event, but I will only
be able to attend on Saturday. More information about this event is
available at:


During the day (0930-1730 local, 1630-0030 UTC), there may be opportunities
for on-air demonstrations of amateur satellite activity. I will have my gear
in Tucson for this event, and demonstrations would be done either with my
WD9EWK call sign or the radio club's K7UAZ call sign. The University of
Arizona campus is in grid DM42.

I will post updates during the day from Science City on my @WD9EWK Twitter
feed. If you aren't on Twitter, you can still see these updates in a web browser


If WD9EWK is used for the demonstrations, I will upload those QSOs to the
Logbook of the World, and have QSL cards available on request for those
wanting to receive a written confirmation. Please e-mail me with the QSO
details. If K7UAZ is used, please direct those QSL requests to the K7UAZ
