Speaking of space… 

The Northern Arizona DX Association'sW7P special event last February honoring the discovery of Pluto was so popular that the group is putting on a repeat perform- ance in early August. Newsline reports that W7P will be back on the air from August 6-8 and will once again feature the opportunity to work Doug Tombaugh, N3PDT, nephew of astronomer Clyde Tombaugh – who discovered the mini-planet in 1930 at the Lowell Observatory in Flagstaff, Arizona. Doug Tombaugh will be operating as W7P/0. The special event will continue annually through the centennial of Pluto's discovery in 2030.
