Hi Pete,
I think the person who actually updates the SA-AMSAT home page is traveling
a lot at the moment.
This week - ending today (Sunday) is the Americas.
The rest of this month is different from the usual schedule due to the
problems with the charge of SO-67. 
I hope they have solved it :-)

The rest of June is scheduled according to this plan if all goes well:

Monday 6  June – Sunday 12 June     Americas

Monday 13 June – Sunday 19 June     Europe

Monday 20 June – Sunday  3 July     Australasia 2 weeks

I can publish the European week - but I will wait until Sunday.
There may be changes to the wish list.

Hope you all understand the conditions.

Have a nice Sunday.

Emne: [amsat-bb] SO-67 Schedule

It can sometimes be quite difficult to find when SO-67 will be on air. The
schedules aren't always posted here, or on the amsatsa website.

As an occasional amateur satellite operator, it can be frustrating to not be
able to look up when this bird is on air. Those more regular operators
probably don't suffer with this problem quite so much. I understand the
payload is a secondary one, however if the schedule was kept up to date it
would be very helpful :-)

There have been several emails on the -bb stating the loose schedule of one
week in four for the US, Europe etc. These can be difficult to find, may I
suggest that it be put up on either the amsatsa website that is linked to as
"schedule information" or on the amsat-na page with a disclaimer that this
is a general schedule that isn't always in force for operational reasons. ?

Just a suggestion
