You are probably correct in that statement Jeff, "so naturally we're nuts,"....hi... I can imagine just what folks think when they see one of us sweeping the skies with our little antennas and radios. 

That 4 corner location was viewed in Google Earth. Once I get in the area, then I can really look over the situation. I dont think CM96 or CM97 are in demand as much as DM07, looking at your survey. So, when I get there I will determine just exactly what I am going to do. 

Again, this Grid-exposition is scheduled for tomorrow 11/18/09 on the AO-27 pass @ 2041 utc and the SO-50 pass @ 2238 utc. Also maybe the AO-27 pass @ 2220 utc, which is a West Coast pass. Equipment will be Yaesu FT-60R HT and ELK yagi on tripod this time. 

For QSL, send me an email with your info or QSL direct (SASE not required but appreciated) or eQSL.cc. I dont chase paper or grids, but do like to get cards. Hey, gotta plug up the nail holes in the wall the xyl puts in with pictures and nick-nacks, right? 

Hope to see you all there.

Hi John, 

Will be looking forward to working you in DM07. You know. The 4 grid 
corner in the middle of an almond orchard is really not a problem. We're 
hams, we operate satellites, so naturally we're nuts, so we'd all fit in. :)
