I talked with Bernardo on AO-51 this morning, and he said he will be in DL37
(a desert in southern Baja California) tomorrow. He previously mentioned via
e-mail his plans to be on from there and other grids in the area (DL27, DL28,
and DL38) between Friday 18th and Monday 21st, saying he would spend
the most time in DL27 and DL37 with maybe one pass each for DL28 and
DL38. All of the satellite work will be via AO-51. The rest of the weekend
will be spent working the ARRL 10 GHz and Up contest from down there.
Bernardo's English is pretty good, but please use the phonetic alphabet when
calling him - or call him in Spanish. :-) He has antennas and a new duplexer
for his satellite work, in addition to what XE2AT sent him, so hopefully he can
show up from those spots.
