I live in the southern part of the state of Florida, and from my
observations, it seems AO-27 turns on when it's near the center of the
USA. From looking at the footprint, that puts me in range for perhaps
5 minutes, and most of Mexico for about the same amount of time. This
of course is when the bird is usable for me.
You can check the official AO-27 homepage, where there is a link for
the status of the satellite for a 24 hour period here: http://www.ao27.org/AO27/index.shtml
