On Saturday, 5 June 2010, I will attend the White Mountain Hamfest
in Show Low, Arizona.  This is a half-day hamfest in eastern Arizona,
and more information about the hamfest is available at:


During the hamfest, there will be on-air demonstrations on various
satellites by WD9EWK.  The hamfest site is in grid DM44xg.  After
the hamfest, depending on the time and weather, I hope to be on the
air from the DM44/DM54 grid boundary which is less than 3 miles/5km
east of the hamfest site.  

On Sunday, 6 June 2010, I plan on driving northward toward grid DM56
somewhere in northeastern Arizona or northwestern New Mexico.  This
is a grid I have worked from only once (July 2008), and have worked 
only one station via satellite from this area in the past few years.
I will try to work as many passes, FM and SSB, that I can get on from
up there into the mid-afternoon.  Since it will take at least 5 hours
for me to get home from this area, I cannot stay up there for the 
passes in the late afternoon or evening.  I will post more information
about this part of the trip to the -BB during that weekend.  

As with my other road trips, I will be happy to QSL contacts made with
WD9EWK from the hamfest and the post-hamfest activity.  Please e-mail
me the QSO details, and - if you are in the log - I will send you a
