WD9EWK's travels (17-23 July)


On Thursday (17 July), I begin a week-long road trip that includes
a hamfest and visits to several unusual grids in and around Arizona.
These plans, other than the hamfest, are tentative and subject to
change without warning.

On the 17th, I leave Phoenix for northern Arizona.  I will try to be
on the afternoon AO-27 and possibly the evening AO-51 passes from
somewhere up there.  I don't know which grids I will get to for
those passes, but I will be on from wherever I happen to be at those

The ARRL Arizona State Convention and Hamfest is a two-day event, on
Friday (18th) and Saturday (19th) in Williams.  Williams is a small
city on Interstate 40 and the old US route 66, west of Flagstaff and
south of the Grand Canyon, in grid DM35.  At the hamfest, I will be
part of the AMSAT table and will give presentations and do some
demonstrations on the FM satellites and *possibly* VO-52 during
those two days.

After the hamfest, I plan on taking the next 3 or 4 days traveling
around northern and western Arizona and neighboring states.  As of
now, I am planning to initially head northeast from Williams toward
the Arizona/Utah border, and then work my way west toward Las Vegas
before returning home.  While on the road, I will try to post
updates to my travel plans.
