It turns out the location I picked for DN00/10 was just far enough away from the nearby mountain ranges to allow the <20 degree eastern passes of SO-50 and FO-29 to skirt just along the ridge tops on Saturday... I was able to work a good number of stations including Alaska between the 4 passes. But there are several ops that were unable to show up for the Saturday passes and a few that called me, but I was unable to work. - So, the bottom line is, no need to work me again if you already worked me on Saturday.... same grids. =^)

I plan to be in the same spot for the mid US SO-50 and FO-29 passes. They will slightly overlap, so SO-50 starts for me around 1842z. Then when I lose the bird I plan to switch over to FO-29 which will be between 1851z and 1855z. There is a slight chance of rain or thunderstorms, so we will just have to hope they don't pick pass times to show up, because I will be unable to stay for any later passes. For the most part this will bring the Nevada part of my satellite adventure to a close. It's been a LOT of fun, but honestly, after two weeks of being on the road, the daughter and I are both starting to miss home. =^)

Thanks to everyone for all the contacts! I really enjoyed it and learned a lot. I'm glad I was able to help out so many with some new grids... believe me, it was my pleasure! - 73, Kevin N4UFO
