I will head west for this weekend's Yuma Hamfest tomorrow night.
Since I am not leaving earlier in the day, I don't plan on making
stops along my drive from Phoenix. With that said, if I am making
good time on the drive, I might stop to work a pass or two on the
drive west. The best way to see what I'm doing is to look for
WD9EWK-9 on APRS:
I will spend most of my drive on the I-8 freeway through Arizona
and a part of southern California tomorrow night, passing through
grids DM22 and DM32.
As of now, my plans are to return home sometime on Sunday (19
February). I don't have to drive the most direct route home, but
that route would go back through the rarely-heard grid DM32. Or,
based on some Twitter discussions a couple of weeks ago, I could
make a long loop into southern California and work from grid
DM13 once again. Or I could go north, heading back to the DM23/DM24
grid boundary - a place I operated from a couple of weeks ago. Any
preferences? If so, please let me know by e-mail or at my @WD9EWK
Thanks in advance, and 73!
