I don't normally write about an event I plan on attending where I
represent AMSAT so far in advance, but I'm making an exception for
this event. Even though it has been mentioned in recent AMSAT News
Service bulletins, and listed on the AMSAT web site, there has been
an attempt at misinformation on a web forum about this. To clear
the air...

AMSAT will be at the Palm Springs Hamfest in southern California on
Saturday, 4 February 2017.

Thanks to Rick Fearns and the Palm Springs Hamfest committee, AMSAT
will have a booth at the hamfest. Along with a change in date (this
had been held in mid-March for the past couple of years), the location
has moved to the Palm Springs Air Museum along Gene Autry Trail, south
of I-10 and near the Palm Springs Airport. More information about the
hamfest is available at:


I have been in contact with the hamfest committee, trying to get AMSAT
listed on the hamfest's web site. Hopefully that will be rectified
shortly. In any event, AMSAT will be present at this hamfest, which
should draw hams from around southern California, as well as from
Arizona and possibly southern Nevada. I will be there, and I am looking
forward to making the trip out there.
