On Thursday (17 July), I begin a week-long road trip that includes
a hamfest and visits to several unusual grids in and around Arizona.
These plans, other than the hamfest, are tentative and subject to
change without warning.
On the 17th, I leave Phoenix for northern Arizona. I will try to be
on the afternoon AO-27 and possibly the evening AO-51 passes from
somewhere up there. I don't know which grids I will get to for
those passes, but I will be on from wherever I happen to be at those
The ARRL Arizona State Convention and Hamfest is a two-day event, on
Friday (18th) and Saturday (19th) in Williams. Williams is a small
city on Interstate 40 and the old US route 66, west of Flagstaff and
south of the Grand Canyon, in grid DM35. At the hamfest, I will be
part of the AMSAT table and will give presentations and do some
demonstrations on the FM satellites and *possibly* VO-52 during
those two days.
After the hamfest, I plan on taking the next 3 or 4 days traveling
around northern and western Arizona and neighboring states. As of
now, I am planning to initially head northeast from Williams toward
the Arizona/Utah border, and then work my way west toward Las Vegas
before returning home. While on the road, I will try to post
updates to my travel plans.
