I will make a quick drive to grid DM34we tomorrow (Saturday, 19
December) morning for a few hours of working different satellite
passes. I plan on operating from a freeway rest area about 50
miles/80km north of Phoenix, starting around 1500 to 1600 UTC
into the mid-afternoon. If the ISS radios are back on, I may
try to work stations through the ISS packet/APRS digipeater on
145.825 MHz during a couple of passes around midday.
As with my other trips, I will post updates via my @WD9EWK
Twitter feed. This is also visible at http://twitter.com/WD9EWK
in a web browser, even if you do not use Twitter. I will use
APRS to show my location while on the road, squawking as
WD9EWK-9. This should be visible online at (among other places)
After this quick day-trip, I will upload my log to Logbook of
the World. If you'd like a QSL card to confirm a contact with
WD9EWK at DM34, please e-mail me directly with the QSO details.
