Are there any good SURpasses during the hamfest? I thought the favorable passes are still in the evening?
It's a busy day for me but I may be able to work an early pass.

I will have an AMSAT table at the White Mountain Hamfest in Show Low,
Arizona, this Saturday, 4 June 2016. The hamfest will be at the Show Low
City Hall parking lot, south of US-60 and west of AZ-260 in the center
of Show Low. This is a half-day hamfest, scheduled to end "noonish"
(around 1900 UTC).
During the hamfest, WD9EWK will be on various satellite passes for on-air
demonstrations of satellite operating. Please call WD9EWK if you hear me,
and be a part of the demonstrations. The hamfest site is in grid DM44.
All QSOs will be uploaded to Logbook of the World after the hamfest, and I
am happy to send QSL cards to anyone who wishes to receive a card. Please
e-mail me the QSO details to get a card. If you're in the log, I will send
a card. No need to first mail a card and/or SASE to get my card in return.
I should be able to post pictures and other updates during the morning to
my @WD9EWK Twitter feed. This is an open feed, which can be viewed in a web
if you don't use Twitter. Also, my location should be visible via APRS. I
use WD9EWK-9 as my call sign for APRS, and - among other sites - it should
be visible at:
during my drive to Show Low on Friday evening, as well as at the hamfest
Saturday morning. Other than on ISS passes, I won't leave my APRS radio
squawking once I have parked at the hamfest.
Thanks in advance, and 73!
