LA County Fair - Wrap-up

Just finished the third weekend at the Los Angeles County Fair. Last  
Saturday’s weather was, well, rather miserable. But Sunday’s weather  
was magnificent, and Fair attendance picked up quite a bit. The  
Amateur Radio Expo stayed fair-ly busy (pun intended). I picked up  
three club meeting presentations, and am scheduling three school  
presentations - so, personally, I was glad the effort was made to  
have AMSAT represented. (Arrive at 7am to set up, leave between  
11:30pm - 12:30am each night after breaking it all down...)

Successful AO-51 contacts were made every Saturday and Sunday nights,  
with the only exception being last Sunday night, when the sat was  
just too low to work at low power. Last Saturday, THREE COUNTRIES  
were worked on the evening AO-51 pass: Mexico, the U.S., and Canada!
