    There are very few hams there compared to the more populated states.

    Yep, low population of hams. But lots of wind and dust!

    I pirate's favorite letter isn't "R".

    It's "The C"

    Look for 'Summit on the Air' stations in those states.

    The summit designators would be W7Y/* or W0D/*.
