Funny, I was just thinking about Jeff today wondering where he was.


I was thinking about working more in the area around Santa Ynez.there's some
big hills around Lompoc and I thought I might do better north of Santa Ynez.


Speaking of paddling, I am in the early stages of planning to activate CM93
from Santa Rosa Island.thinking of next March.before it gets too hot!

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??

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:

Day          Object  AOS(U)  LOS    maxEl  Az

14.07.2010  AO-27  21:02  21:17  52      153 - 353
