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
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.
