I'm getting set for my drive into southern Utah tomorrow morning.
I apologize for not showing up on passes today.  Lots of people in
the hall at the hamfest, and storm clouds in the afternoon kept me
off the air.  A good two-day hamfest, including a quick visit by
"Uncle" Larry WA6DIR stopping in Williams on his way to New Mexico.
Thanks to the Amateur Radio Council of Arizona for allowing AMSAT
to be in the main exhibit hall for the hamfest!

So far, I'm still planning to be around DM47 and/or DM57 for the
AO-27 passes in the afternoon.  Maybe even on the grid boundary, if
there is a safe place to stop there.  After that, I hope to get as
far north as DM58 near the Utah/Colorado state line for the AO-51 
passes tomorrow night.  Since SO-50 passes are in the mid- to late-
morning, I may be able to get on those passes on my way toward DM57
(either from DM46 in Arizona or DM47 in Utah, on the Navajo Nation

Good night, and 73!
