WD9EWK from DM34 and DM25/DM35, 31 May



Hi!

On Saturday, 31 May 2008, I will have an AMSAT table at the hamfest
in Prescott, Arizona (grid DM34).  More information about the hamfest
is available from these links:

During the morning, I will have on-air demonstrations using the
AO-51 satellite.  There is a nice pass to the east just before 
the start time for this hamfest (0800 local/1500 UTC) that I will
be on, as well as the subsequent western pass, using my callsign 
WD9EWK.  

After the hamfest, I will drive toward Kingman in northwestern 
Arizona (on I-40 and old US 66) to find a good spot on the 
DM25/DM35 grid boundary near that city.  I plan on being there 
for AO-51 passes Saturday evening (early Sunday, UTC) both to 
the east and west, for anyone interested in making a contact with
those grids.   

I am not sure if I will be on for AO-27 or SO-50 passes during 
the afternoon or early evening on Saturday.  I will review pass 
times for those satellites, to see if those passes work with my
travel plans.  

73!
