I will make a quick trip to Montezuma Castle National Monument, site
MN52 for the ARRL's National Parks on the Air activity, tomorrow
afternoon (Saturday, 6 August) for a few passes. Montezuma Castle
National Monument is along I-17 near Camp Verde, Arizona - between
Phoenix and Flagstaff in grid DM44. For this activation, I am
focusing on the SO-50 pass at 2132 UTC, followed by an ISS pass at
2207 UTC. If AO-7 remains in mode B during the afternoon, I might
try the AO-7 pass at 2112 UTC before SO-50 comes by. Depending on
weather and how well I do on these passes, I might stick around for
later passes on these satellites, until the monument's closing time
at 5pm (0000 UTC).

During the mid- to late-afternoon, I should be able to tweet photos
and other updates on my activity from Montezuma Castle. My @WD9EWK
Twitter feed is public, and - if you don't do Twitter - visible at:


I will upload my log to Logbook of the World after I return home. I
am hoping to work at least 10 different stations, to make this an
official activation under the ARRL's NPOTA rules.
