Hi David and are you paddling to the Islands???  Good place around Lompoc is at 
the train station, West of town along the beach.  I worked from there early last 
year, but only station worked was Jeff, WB3JFS.  Speaking of Jeff......anyone 
heard him on of late??

Subject: [amsat-bb]  Looking for CM94 ?

I will be taking a one day trip up the coast a bit to CM94.  This is the
grid that contains Vandenberg AFB which launches its fair share of
satellites (unfortunately, I will not be operating from the base) and I've
been told it is a bit of a rare grid these days.

If you are looking for this grid, below are the passes I plan to operate.
These will mostly be pretty high passes for me which is good as I will be
using a handheld Arrow antenna.  I wish there were a lower elevation pass of
AO-07 in the east or even better, an easterly pass of HO-68 in FM mode but
these are not in the cards.  If there is enough demand, I can work on
activating this grid again in the future.

Here are the passes I plan to work:
