Hi all,

I sent a note a few weeks ago about a trip to Kauai and the potential 
for satellite contacts. It was pretty comical, the only chance I had to 
actually hit a pass was one where a satellite went directly overhead. I 
ran out, got full quieting, was all kinds of excited, and .. well.. I 
was the only guy in the footprint :-)

I'm heading to Seychelles tomorrow (LI75RJ, out in the indian ocean) for 
an 8 day trip and bringing my HT and Arrow2.  Am I being overly hopeful 
that I'll have anyone to talk to if I can catch few passes?   I'm a new 
ham and new to satellite contacts so just not sure if it's worth the 
trouble to try. ??
