W1AW/7 will be on FO-29 for the western pass at 0200 UTC, 
followed by AO-73 passes at 0400 and 0534 UTC. It looks like 
Hawaii should be in the footprint for a few minutes, starting 
around 0204 UTC, if anyone out there is interested in getting 
on FO-29. 

I plan on having W1AW/7 on the air Monday afternoon from the 
DM33/DM43 grid boundary for the 1845 and 2027 UTC passes.
The earlier pass around 1705-1713 UTC has maximum elevation
of only 4 degrees, not really a workable pass from the Phoenix 
area with the mountains around the city, so I will focus on the 
two later passes.  After these passes from the grid boundary, 
W1AW/7 will be on FO-29 and AO-73 passes in the late afternoon
and early evening to wrap up the W1AW/7 satellite activity from 
Arizona as part of the ARRL Centennial QSO Party. 

As a reminder, QSL cards for all W1AW/x operations will be handled
by the ARRL.  As ARRL receives logs from the W1AW/x operations,
those logs are uploaded to Logbook of the World - including the grid
locator(s) for each QSO.  QSOs with W1AW/7 on the AO-73 passes 
tonight and tomorrow night also count for N8HM's new 73 on 73 award,
if you are looking to get unique calls in your log.
