Is there any interest/need for FM satellite contacts from Guam? I
have a long business trip starting tomorrow (on the island from 18-28
April), and am willing to make the effort if there are those who need
KH2 and the satellites are available.
It's been a number of years since I was active on the birds, and I'm
not sure of the status of all of them. I know that AO-51 is gone, I
think AO-27 and SO-50 are still available, and don't know about any
of the newer ones.
My equipment consists of a Yaesu VX5R and Arrow, so I'm limited to
the FM satellites.
Given the coverage of LEOs, I don't even know if there are other
operators that could work me while on Guam. But I'm willing to give
it a shot.
My other limitation is that this is primarily a work trip, so
operating times will be limited and controlled by work schedules.
So if this is of interest and useful to someone, please let me know,
and we'll see if I can make it happen.
