Hi Clint!

And don't forget Jeff K7WIN in southeastern Arizona - who you
had your Scouts yell "Hello Arizona" to.  It was good to hear you
and your group on the "normal" AO-51 repeater last night.

The Mexican you briefly talked with was Antonio XE2SIV, who
lives just south of the Arizona/Mexico border near the Colorado
River in the city of San Luis (there is also a San Luis AZ across
the border from this San Luis, south of Yuma AZ).

Yes, I had parked on the Arizona/New Mexico state line just
off the I-10 freeway for that AO-51 pass and an earlier AO-27
pass.  I'll elaborate on my Saturday activities in a separate
-BB post.  If you'd like, I can e-mail you my MP3 of that pass
in a separate e-mail.
