I don't know when I will drive out to Yuma on Thursday in advance
of the hamfest.  I will keep a printout of upcoming passes in the 
car, so I can try to work from grid DM32 as I drive out there.  I plan
on driving home on Sunday morning, and I should be able to work 
passes for a couple of hours from somewhere in grid DM32.  Since 
there isn't much in grid DM32, and almost nothing between the I-8 
freeway and the Mexican border except for an Air Force bombing 
range, I won't plan on setting up out there before sunrise.  I might 
try to work from the DM22/DM32 boundary on the north side of I-8, 
a place I have worked from many times in the past, about 25 
miles/40km east of Yuma.  

Depending on APRS coverage east of Yuma along the freeway, you
may be able to see my location on http://aprs.fi/WD9EWK-9 as I
drive out there.  I'll also post updates on my Twitter feed @WD9EWK
which can also be seen at http://twitter.com/WD9EWK if you don't
use Twitter.  

Just like with QSOs I make at hamfests, including at the upcoming
Yuma hamfest, I will upload my log to Logbook of the World.  Anyone 
wanting a QSL card for working me can just e-mail me the QSO 
details.  I'll be happy to send you a card if you're in the log.  No SASE
