After today's quick run north of Phoenix to the DM34/DM44 grid
boundary earlier today, I'm going to do another grid boundary
run on Friday (5 January). This time, much closer to home, on
the DM33/DM43 grid boundary in Phoenix. This will be in the city
park I used for many years as my "home QTH" for working satellites,
and I have been up there recently a few times. This will be my
first visit to this grid boundary in 2018.

If I can get to the park early enough, I might start with the
FalconSat-3 pass at just after 1700 UTC. Otherwise, there is a
western SO-50 pass just before 1800 UTC that I'll start on, or
another FalconSat-3 pass at 1846 UTC that I might start with. From
there, I also see passes on AO-91, AO-7, and - if I stay at the park
into the mid-afternoon - AO-85. FM, SSB, and packet - just like I
did today. For purposes of the new AMSAT rover award, this will be
an activation for DM33 only, as I live in DM43. For everything else,
it will be two grids on offer for each QSO I make there.

I will post updates during the day to my @WD9EWK Twitter account. Logs
will be uploaded to Logbook of the World. If anyone would like to
receive a QSL card for a QSO made at the DM33/DM43 line, please e-mail
me directly with the QSO details. No need to send me a card or SASE
