Your wish may come true. I was going to wait a few more months but I will let the "cat out of the bag" now.;)
I am planning to go to Hawaii next March, 2010. I have not made travel arrangements yet but current plans are to visit Oahu, Kauai and Big Island for my annual scuba vacation. If I go, I should be there for about 2 weeks. Possible Grids are: BL01, BL02, BL11, BL20, BK29 and time permitting with some nudging BK19. Sorry no Maui this time, I was there 2 years ago.
I would appreciate hearing back from anybody who has worked from these grids or any advice for this Dxpedition due to the short passes.
I enjoyed so much working from EK99 earlier in the year, that I am seriously considering doing another expedition to some exotic grids like BL and BK.

I've been in touch with him to provide information on the stations I'm aware of.
Congratulations on WAS!!!! Good for you. I doubt seriously there are too many Satellite WAS awards earned via LEO satellites exclusively. That's quite an accomplishment.
Speaking of which ... I'd like to formally request BK29 as one of your rare grids to activate on the next expedition..... ;-)
73 and congrats again,
