I've noticed that AO-51 will have a maximum
elevation of 2 degrees on todays "easterly"
Hawaiian pass. The footprint will extend from
Honolulu to near the western border of Iowa.
To date, my "longest" AO-51 QSO has
been with K7ULS near Eden, Utah. This
may be an opportunity to extend that
distance. I am willing to give it a try.
The pass "over" Hawaii will be from 0232Z
to 0236Z today. I should be at the beach
with my Arrow and D700 shortly before
that (5 Watts). At minimum, I will get to
see some nice sceney on the way to the
beach HIHI. Hope to hear you.
Aloha and 73, de robert
NH7WN in Honolulu.
