Yes I can work AO-7. Let's hope the Old Bird is still alive and kicking then.
Maybe if I get on top of the volcano in BK29 I can "stretch the rope" a little further into EM84. HiHi. ;)
Will start doing some planning after I get back from EA6 in late October from working CQWW SSB.
I'll start looking at locations and possible times to all areas Stateside, Asia and Pacific.
I'll send an update out later in the year once I have firmed up travel dates and grid locations.
Until then I am open to hearing from anybody who needs those grids for planning and sked purposes.
Any other ideas or suggestions from the group are welcome!

Great news! I hope you will be able to work AO-7 because she is the only satellite with a footprint big enough to stretch to EM84.
If not, I'm confident that plenty of operators in the western U.S. will be excited to have you active from Hawaii on the FM satellites.
Rest assured ... I'll stay in touch!
Thank you again,
