Tomorrow (Saturday, 16 December) morning, I will head out to western
Arizona and operate on the DM23vx/DM24va grid boundary. This spot is
north of the AZ-72/AZ-95 junction, north of Quartzsite and southeast
of Parker. I plan on being here from mid-morning into the afternoon,
working FM, SSB, and - if available - packet passes.
Sometime in the mid- to late-afternoon, I am probably going to drive
north to Kingman and the DM25/DM35 grid boundary for some passes up
there. Ideally, I might be able to get in on some of the XW-2 "train"
for the east coast, but would stay there for a couple of hours before
returning home. If there is snow in or around Kingman, I will not
head this way, and may look at an alternative loop for the drive home
(i.e., returning via Yuma AZ and the DM22/DM32 boundary near I-8).
For the night owls, I might still be up for at least one AO-91 pass
late Saturday evening. For that pass, I might be home at that point,
but I will make note of the AO-91 pass times to make sure I don't
While on the road, I'll run APRS from my car as WD9EWK-9. There should
be decent coverage for most of my planned road trip on sites like
(among a few others) http://aprs.fi/WD9EWK-9 . I will also use my
@WD9EWK Twitter account to send updates, and - depending on the mobile
data network - pictures from where I am operating.
After the road trip, I will upload my log to Logbook of the World.
For those that would like to receive a QSL card for a contact with me,
please e-mail me directly with the QSO details. If you're in the log,
I'll get a card out to you.
