Guess I need to slow down a little when plotting passes to work.  Here 
are the passes I plan to work tomorrow (Friday, 13 July) at the 
DM23/DM24 grid boundary in western Arizona:

1811-1828 UTC on FO-29
1845-1849 UTC on AO-27
1955-2015 UTC on FO-29
2023-2030 UTC on AO-27
2141-2157 UTC on FO-29
2204-2211 UTC on AO-27

The first of the AO-27 passes listed above will only have 2 degrees
of maximum elevation around 1846-1848 UTC.  The repeater is scheduled
to switch on at 1842 UTC, so I will not hear the first few minutes
of the 7-minute repeater time. 

Since the afternoon temperature should approach 110F/43C out there, I
expect to be "commuting" between the grid boundary and Quartzsite (about
25 minutes south of the boundary, along the I-10 freeway) to be able to
stay in my car with its air conditioning.  :-)
