I'll be QRV from Delaware on all passes usable with a hand-held antenna on Sunday, 14 June, starting with the first AO51 pass at 14/1140Z and ending with the last FO29 pass at 15/0226Z. All three FM birds plus FO29 and VO52 are on the agenda.

There are 13 passes throughout the day that I'll be on, so there should be plenty of opportunity for contacts.

Pse note that uring this trip, I'm able to do half duplex only and can manually tune only. The FM sats aren't a problem, but FO29 and VO52 will be a challenge since I can't properly adjust my TX for Doppler. I've already made a number of QSOs on the linear birds this way however, including a contact with AA5PK on FO29 tonight for his 50th state, so it's definitely "do-able".

I'll leave Monday morning and head north a bit to put out FM29, then west to start running all FM0x and FM1x grids on a southbound track.

CU on the birds!


Jim, ND9M
Seaford, DE / FM28
