Earlier this week, I sent out a list of passes I plan on working
from the DM51bx/DM52ba grid boundary in southeastern Arizona on Saturday
(22 October) afternoon.  Due to the long gap after the 2310 UTC AO-51
pass before more passes in the evening and my lack of interest in 
being in that area after dark, I do not plan on staying at DM51/DM52 
into the evening.  If I don't take the most direct route home (I-10
through Tucson back to Phoenix), I could stop at the DM52ax/DM53aa grid
boundary (or just some place in the southwestern corner of DM53) for one 
or two passes in the evening (early Sunday morning, UTC time):

SO-50 at 0155-0209 UTC
VO-52 at 0220-0232 UTC 

For the VO-52 pass, I will try to start out around 145.910 MHz USB 
+/-.  If I haven't worked anyone after a couple of minutes at that 
spot, I will tune around and try to work whoever happens to be on 
the transponder for the remainder of the pass.   

Since I still have a drive of over 3 hours from this part of DM53
back home, and it will be dark at those pass times, I cannot stay for 
anything after these two passes. If anyone has an interest in working 
me from somewhere in DM53 tomorrow night, please e-mail me directly.  

As I mentioned in my earlier post, I will have APRS running while 
on the road.  I know it should have decent coverage in that area,
based on past trips.  Among other places online, you can follow
my APRS call WD9EWK-9 at http://aprs.fi/wd9ewk-9
