After Saturday morning's hamfest in Tucson AZ, I plan on making a long drive east to a point along I-10 on the DM52xf/DM62af grid boundary, west of Deming in New Mexico. I hope to work a few passes from there in the mid- to late-afternoon, and possibly into the evening. If I am not at the grid boundary in time for FO-29 and/or AO-7 passes, I may stop to work those passes wherever I might be - probably somewhere in grid DM52, in either Arizona or New Mexico. I definitely plan on being at this grid boundary in time for SO-50 passes starting just after 2200 UTC Saturday afternoon. Weather permitting, and law enforcement permitting (this area is near the USA/Mexico border), I might try to stick around into the early evening before making the 300-mile/500km drive home from that area.
While on the road, my location should be visible via APRS. There is good APRS coverage in southeastern Arizona and southwestern New Mexico. I will use WD9EWK-9 as my call sign for APRS, which should show up online at (among other sites):
I will use my @WD9EWK Twitter feed to post updates during the afternoon and early evening while I am out in New Mexico. For those who don't use Twitter and want to see my updates, please feel free to use the following link in a web browser:
Once I'm back home, I will upload my log to Logbook of the World, and will ensure QSOs from the grid boundary carry both grids. If you would like a QSL card for a QSO with WD9EWK, please e-mail me directly with the QSO details. If you're in the log, I will be happy to mail you a card, and you won't have to first send me a QSL card or SASE.
