While attending the Prescott Hamfest this Friday and Saturday, I will have
some time after each day to venture away from Prescott and operate from
different locations. The DM34/DM35 line is about 30 miles north of Prescott
via AZ-89, and is a nice spot for working satellites, for example. Is there
any interest in working grids like DM35, DM44, or possibly DM45 on either
Friday or Saturday evening? Or even something like DM25 to the northwest
of Prescott along I-40? Please e-mail me directly, or send me a tweet or
DM to my @WD9EWK Twitter account, if there are some grids in this area
that you might want to hear on the satellites Friday or Saturday evening.

The hamfest runs until 4pm/2300 UTC on Friday, and 3pm/2200 UTC Saturday.
It would be after these times, when I would be able to depart Prescott for
some other grids. I don't know how late I plan on staying out both nights,
but I will end up back home sometime on Saturday night, possibly late that
night, depending on where my post-hamfest Arizona road trip goes. I will
have my TH-D72 squawking to the APRS network as WD9EWK-9, and this will
be visible online at (among other places) http://aprs.fi/WD9EWK-9 in a
browser window. Updates will be posted on my @WD9EWK Twitter account, which
can be viewed in a browser window at http://twitter.com/WD9EWK without a
Twitter account.

Just like with the QSOs made during the hamfest, I'll upload any other
QSOs I make this weekend to Logbook of the World. If you'd like a QSL card,
please e-mail me the QSO details. If you are in the log, I'll send a card.
