On Saturday morning, 7 May 2011, I will be at the Cochise Amateur 
Radio Association's annual Larry Warren Hamfest in Sierra Vista, 
Arizona.  This is a half-day event, and more information is available 


I will have an AMSAT table at this hamfest.  WD9EWK will be on 
satellite passes throughout the morning for demonstrations, 
transmitting from grid DM41vm.  

After the hamfest, I am thinking of making a drive toward either 
the DM51/DM52 grid boundary northeast of the hamfest site or possibly 
the Arizona/New Mexico state line along the I-10 freeway for some 
passes in the afternoon into the early evening before driving home.  
I was just at the DM52/DM53 boundary in late March, so I probably 
won't make another trip up there - unless I decide to take the 
really long way home from southeastern Arizona.  I will have my 
TH-D72A transmitting my location via APRS as WD9EWK-9 when I drive
to Sierra Vista on Friday evening, as well as anywhere I go on 
Saturday.  That should be visible at (among other places):

As always, I will be happy to send QSL cards to anyone who works
WD9EWK on Saturday - at the hamfest, or anywhere I happen to stop
after the hamfest.  Just e-mail me the QSO details, and I will 
send a card if you're in the log.  No need to first send me a card
or SASE.  I will also upload my log to Logbook of the World, for 
those using that system to gain contacts and grids.
