I will be running portable from Hawaii, BL11, this afternoon. The equipment (arrow,IC-W32A & LNK-450 pre-amp) seemed to make the trip here OK.
Saturday I was able to hear myself on AO-51 but didn't hear anyone else.
The pass I'll be trying is:
UTC: 9/13 0150 - 0159
PDT: 9/12 6:50 - 6:59 PM
HST: 9/12 3:50 - 3:3:59 PM
There are similar passes on Tues, Wed & Thursday this week. The HO-68 operating schedule doesn't look very promising this week for Hawaii.
Next week (9/17 - 9/24) I'll try AO-51 from Kauai, BL02.
Hope to make some contacts.
