 If you are going to work from EN67, the best spot to work the birds is from
Brockway Mountain. It's just outside of Copper Harbor. Don't try driving
there with a motorhome or 5th wheeler. Look for Brockway Mountain Drive,
just outside of town. They don't like folks doing satellite work in the
parking lot at the top of the mountain. But just ask the folks in the store
at the top and they will let you know where you can set up. Give yourself
some time to check the view from there and keep an eye out for some of the
big lake boats that travel there.
 Another suggestion is to try the broiled lake trout at the Harbour Haus
Restaurant in Copper Harbor.

If you were on AO-51 this afternoon/early evening, the callsign was K8E. We
are in
EN57 (Eagle Harbor, Michigan) for the week and are planning to travel up to
one day this week. It's supposed to rain on Monday, so that may be out.

I am using two HTs and an Arrow Antenna. I don't use FM sats that often, so
I take
it SO-50 and AO-51 are my best choices, since HO-68 is in SSB/CW mode this

QSL via N8MR, if you want to confirm.
