I will be part of the booth for the University of Arizona's radio club
(K7UAZ) for this weekend's ScienceCity science fair, on the University of
Arizona campus in Tucson AZ. This is a two-day event, on Saturday and
Sunday (12 and 13 March 2016). The event will be open from 9.30am to 5.30pm
(1630 to 0030 UTC) each day. More information about the ScienceCity event
is available at:


I was part of the K7UAZ booth for the Saturday of last year's ScienceCity
event, where over 60000 people came through the campus. This year, I wanted
to attend for both days, since last year's event saw an estimated total of
over 130000 people attending both days.

As part of the K7UAZ activity, I will demonstrate satellite operating
during each day. For these demonstrations, I will use the radio club's
K7UAZ call sign. The University of Arizona campus, in the center of
Tucson, in grid DM42. K7UAZ will also be on the HF bands each day. If
anyone works K7UAZ and wishes to receive a QSL card, please look up K7UAZ
on QRZ.com for the mailing address to send your QSL request with SASE.
K7UAZ isn't currently participating in online QSL services like LOTW or
