Weather permitting, I'm planning a quick road trip to northern
Arizona tomorrow (Thursday, 20 July) to work a few passes in
the afternoon. My plan is to park on the DM35/DM45 grid boundary
west of Flagstaff and work passes starting with the shallow
AO-85 pass at high noon (1900 UTC). If the weather holds out,
I'll stay up there through the SO-50 pass at 2339 UTC before
returning home, and I also plan on trying the NO-84 digipeater
if it is active. I won't be on the SSB birds from up there, just
those two FM satellites and (if active) NO-84.

Mobile phone coverage is sketchy in that area, but I will try
to send updates during the day through my @WD9EWK Twitter
account. If you don't use Twitter, you can see these updates


While on the road, I will use APRS to show my location as
WD9EWK-9. This will be visible on the usual APRS-related web
sites, like:


When working NO-84, I will use WD9EWK without the -9 after my
call sign.

After I return home, I will upload my QSOs to Logbook of the
World. If anyone who works me wants a QSL card, please e-mail
me with the QSO details. If you're in the log, I'll send a
