Hello from Tucson!
>From the hamfest tomorrow morning, I plan on working the
145.920/435.300 AO-51 repeater. On VO-52, I will be on the
high end of the passband. I typically try to park around
145.910 MHz USB on the downlink, and keeping in mind that
N2SPI will be up around 145.915 MHz USB on the 1535 UTC
pass I will try to work around him. If you are on VO-52
during that pass, look for both of us.
Later in the day, I will probably have lunch with some local
hams after the hamfest. I am not sure I will work the 2054
UTC AO-27 pass. Good luck to all of those working from rare
grids during that pass. I will try to be on from somewhere
in southeastern Arizona for the western AO-27 pass at 2235
As for AO-51 in the evening - passes around 2318 and 0054
UTC - I will be somewhere in southeastern Arizona and/or
southwestern New Mexico. I may park on the Arizona/New
Mexico state line, or look to be on the DM51/DM52 boundary
from the New Mexico side of the border. I've worked from
these grids on past trips, but only from the Arizona side
of the border. I don't think I will try to drive up toward
DM53, or toward the DM6x grids in New Mexico, as I will be
driving back home in the evening.
Again, good luck to the others who are going out to rare or
unusual grids during various passes tomorrow. 73!
