Yesterday's snowfall in SW Kansas complicated road conditions and especially safety so I opted to hold off getting to the DM98/EM08 line until today (Friday). I'll operate from that line during the AO27 pass that starts at about 29/1950Z. Depending on accessibiltiy, I may get to the quad grid point and add DM99/EM09.
>From there, we'll head north to Nebraska and put out DM99/EM09 during the AO51 pass at 2236Z and then either put out the DN90/EN00 grid line or the DM99/EM09/DN90/EN09 quad field point on the AO51 pass starting at 30/0014Z.
We have to focus on getting to Denver now, so time permitting, Saturday's game plan will be to hit the DN91/EN01 line on AO27 at 30/1922Z, stop again in DN91 for the second AO27 pass at 2101Z, and then the DN80/DN81 grid line on AO51 at 30/2335.
After that, we'll be in Denver (DN70) and Cheyenne (DN71) with family for a few days before heading south through NM and into TX.
73 for now,
Jim, ND9M / VQ9JC
Wekeeney, KS / EM09
