I hope to work them! If anyone hears them, or more information becomes
available, please post it here!
As a reminder, AMSAT has two Arrow antennas, and a TH-D7 available for
loan to any member going on a DXpedition, or grid trip. This is the same
gear used to activate K5D last year about this time. The D7 is
programmed with Alpha-Memory tags for the FM satellites and has both
rechargeable and AA battery packs, and is very simple to use. Contact me
if you have a need to use it.
