I am driving to Las Vegas for this weekend's NVCON convention,
and I already posted a message to the -BB about that event.
Before I reach Las Vegas on Friday (31 March), I am planning
on a stop in Kingman, Arizona, on the DM25/DM35 grid boundary.
I'm hoping to make it to Kingman around 1600 UTC to work some
passes, before driving the last 100 miles/160km from Kingman
to Las Vegas and the NVCON convention.

After the convention wraps up on Sunday (2 April), I plan on
heading back to Phoenix, but not directly to Phoenix. I can
make stops on one of 3 different grid boundaries:

1. DM25/DM35 grid boundary in Kingman AZ (a repeat of the
   stop I plan to make on Friday morning)
2. DM24/DM25 grid boundary, about 15 miles/25km south of
   Kingman along the I-40 freeway
3. DM26/DM36 grid boundary in northwestern Arizona, near
   the I-15 freeway and northeast of Mesquite NV

Any preferences on which grid boundary you'd like to hear me
operating from?

I don't know what time I will depart Las Vegas on Sunday, so
I can't post any schedules for operating from any of these
locations. As with my other road trips, I will use APRS as
WD9EWK-9 as I drive. You can see my APRS track at (among
other online places):


QSOs will be uploaded to Logbook of the World, and QSL cards
will be available on request (please e-mail me directly with
QSO details, if you want a card). Updates should also appear
on my @WD9EWK Twitter account, also visible at:
