We'll be running the DM95/DM96 and EM06/EM07 grid lines tomorrow (Wed). (All planned grid line ops assume that we can actually GET to the line itself; we've been very lucky so far...)
>From there we'll overnight in Dodge City, KS, which sits on the DM97/EM07 line. With a winter storm warning in effect for this area on Thursday, we might sit tight in Marshall Dillon's corral for a day before resuming our northbound leg.
So far, all my ops have been on AO27 and AO51, mainly because I'm having a bit of difficulty finding my downlink on the linear birds (AO7, VO52, and HO68). No doubt it's a simple error that I'm overlooking since I was able to use all three birds before we left FL. I'll give VO52 another go during tomorrow's 27/1632Z pass and HO68 an hour later.

Shamrock, TX / DM95
