Contacts for my Sunday/Monday grid activations are uploaded to LoTW. Please
let me know if any QSOs are missing or grids in error. I made at least 59
contacts from 7 grids using 5 satellites while driving 800 miles in 2 days
to an area I had never visited.

I was sorry not to have better timing for Europe and west coast US passes.
Another chance at these grids is coming up soon, as W5PFG will be roving in
Maine (https://www.amsat.org/satellite-info/upcoming-satellite-operations/).

I learned to appreciate, but not rely on, an electronic recording device (I
lost my 23JUL-1310Z FO-29 recording). I still prefer paper and pencil...
dependable, if cumbersome.

I was able to visit every planet but Jupiter (missing), 2 dwarf planets,
the Sun, and several moons (http://pages.umpi.edu/nmms/solar/). I also
spotted quite a few birds of the other sort, though no "new ones" for that

Potato blossoms were in bloom and the wheat fields were beautiful.

Thanks to all who called. Apologies to those I missed.
