Las Vegas, Arizona area help needed among others?

The annual Operation On-Target of scouts and hams manning dozens of mountain tops out west and back east to attempt signalling with mirrors and Ham radio is taking shape for Saturday 21 July.

Here is the current map. http://goo.gl/maps/zc33

Although we pretty well have the Appalachains covered from GA to Maine (with some gaps still needed), for the first time we are starting to see lots of participation out west.  On the above map there seems to be a mountain chain forming in So Cal and in Utah.  All we need are a station or two in the Las Vegas, western Arizona or death valley area to link them up.

This year will be the first year for APRS to do the Golden Packet linking out west.  There are already dozens of hams out there involved, but we need them to use their APRS radios to bring the event alive.
