Pacificon is going very well for the AMSAT booth. Many
thanks to Alan WA6DNR, his friend Louise, and TIm W6MU
here at the convention. It rained a lot yesterday, but
for now there's a break in the rain. I plan on working
a couple of passes in the 1830-1900 UTC timeframe today,
starting with SO-50 and then switching to FO-29 at the
SO-50 LOS (or whenever I run out of stations to work
on SO-50). Demonstrations will be done using W1AW/6,
meaning ARRL will take care of the LOTW uploading and
QSL chores. Thanks to the ARRL and Pacificon for allowing
me to use the W1AW/6 call for the demonstrations.

For FO-29, I plan on using a single FT-817 and Elk antenna,
transmitting around 145.930 MHz +/-. Whether on SO-50 or
FO-29, please call if you hear W1AW/6 on these passes.
