I know others have traversed much of Nevada in recent weeks, but I am
planning to also do something like that over the next 2+ days. With the
AMSAT Symposium wrapping up here in Reno, I plan on heading east along
I-80 toward Utah on Monday morning. I hope to be able to activate some
grids (DN00, DN10, DN11, DN20, DN21, DN30) before I stop for the night
somewhere around the Nevada/Utah state line. Tuesday will see a return
trip west across Nevada via US-93 and US-50, where I may be able to
make stops at DM28 and a quick excursion to DM39 inside Utah, before
hitting DM29 and DM19 on the westbound trip back to Reno. I might get
on the air Wednesday morning before returning to the Reno airport for
my flight home, probably from somewhere in DM09 one last time.

It looks like APRS digipeaters cover much of I-80 and US-50 across
Nevada, and I might show up as WD9EWK-9 on web sites like
http://aprs.fi/WD9EWK-9 as I drive around. I will also use my @WD9EWK
Twitter account to send out updates. If you don't use Twitter, you
can still view my tweets in a web browser at:


I have already uploaded my logs to Logbook of the World from the past
few days' operating around Reno and Lake Tahoe. I'll do the same for
the QSOs logged in the next couple of days, but I might not get them
into LOTW right after each pass. Please be patient with the LOTW
