Just for the record in those trouble days.
Since the end of AO-40 this feedup wave came and go at moderate chop beyond the reef. I was surfing also time to time but on Feb the 10 UTC
on FO-29 0110 pass and i was alone with KC4KMY. In the eastern NA common foot print ALL the northern, eastern and south European continent
was in view and in bonus the north and east coast of Africa. Near LOS the northern part of South America up to the amazon river was in
Signal where Q5 but only two surfers... I know they where sleeping on the old continent but if by any chance someone is passing by his
shack overnight heading to his toilet just check through the blinds for a couple of minutes. There is a lot of DX opportunities on FO-29
In the AO-40 era most of the DX pass where overnight here and it was near the only one way to have super DX QSO's
BTW the first step towards the next HEO is to have one international AMSAT regrouping all the expertise and funds. That's what someone
named Obama tells the crowds regroup and get together!
The public works snow blower is just passing on my street widening it (one pass on each side and two other on an intersection) and shooting
all his stuff directly on my front house terrain making a superb sound and light show... at 0500AM :( too bad no satellite in view!
