HI Folks,

  About 36 hours ago, I had an excellent QSO with Tim, N3TL via FO-29 on SSB. We had
about a two minute window, so we did't have much time for rag chewing!!!

  According to my investigations, there are only a few orbits of FO-29 (my favorite
satellite at present, and I think the only one high enough to reach many of the
Eastern States). One of them occurs in about 12 hours, at 0044 (UTC) 5 July.

  Bearing in mind Tim is in quite far south, it should be possible for addition
States to be worked from here.

  Please note that I can only do SSB (CW is far to rusty, I'm sorry to say)

  If anyone in the 13 States would like to make a sked for this orbit of FO-29,
please email me off list at g3wgm at amsat.org

  73s, and Happy Holidays!
