I will be active this Thursday-Saturday from the northern lower
peninsula of Michigan--primarily grid square EN74.  Despite the fact
that Traverse City is located within EN74, this is a rarely activated
grid on satellite.  I plan to operate as many passes as my schedule &
time permits to give the opportunity for those who don't have this
grid to put it in their logbook.

Since I will only have the capability to operate FM voice satellite,
my operations will be limited to AO-27 and SO-50, as AO-51 is in mode
V/S until Sunday evening & HO-68 is not scheduled for FM operation
this weekend.

My tentative schedule is as follows:

Thursday 22-Apr-2010
  AO-27 18:48z - 19:03z (from wherever I am at the time, most likely
EN63; possibly EN64)

Friday 23-Apr-2010
  SO-50 04:04z - 04:18z (upon request)

  SO-50 12:35z - 12:48z

  AO-27 18:21z - 18:34z*
  AO-27 20:00z - 20:13z*

Saturday 24-Apr-2010
  SO-50 04:34z - 04:47z (upon request)

  SO-50 11:24z - 11:37z

  AO-27 17:53z - 18:05z*
  AO-27 19:31z - 19:45z (maybe; EN63)

*If there is significant interest, I will consider activating EN64 on
Friday and/or Saturday afternoon.  Send me an email off-list if you
need EN64, if I have significant interest I will make an effort to
activate this grid as well during my trip.

I will QSL upon request, just send me an email and I will send you a
card.  No SASE needed, but always appreciated.
