 Good morning Drew. I was invited by Bud to cover the satellite com's on his
yearly Dx-Peditions he does every year just before Orlando hamfest time. As
I'm in the middle of building a new house that is getting seriously behind
schedule I won't be able to make the trip to the Orlando hamfest or join the
DX-Pedition this year. I made Bud aware that he could borrow whatever he
needs from me, and I also told him about the available AMSAT loaner

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.
