W2RDX from Webster, NY (FN13) will be on this weekend for FD. As Tim alluded to, don't forget that you can work the same station on both SSB and CW on the analog transponders, so plug in those keys!
Addtionly, according the ARRL FD rules, DX stations should send their operating class and "DX". The operating class for your typical home station would be "1D", so the exchange would be "1D DX".
Should be a good time....

How about posting the call sign you'll be using over Field Day weekend for satellite contacts?
Here, I'll be providing the satellite station for the combined FD effort of the Athens Amateur Radio Club and the Northeast Georgia ARC, and they have obtained the special 1x1 call W4G for Field Day.
I know many of us will be using club calls over Field Day, and I'm interested in know "who will be who" this weekend.
I'm also interested in CW contacts on AO-7, FO-29 and VO-52, so I hope those of you who will be working those three will bring a key or paddle along. If you do, please listen for W4G a few kHz below the middles of theses satellites' passbands.
73 to all, and enjoy Field Day!
