Greetings, all

I'll be operating for the BSA JOTA event from the USS IOWA in San Pedro 
on 20 October from 1600 UTC to 2300 UTC.

We'll be using the callsign NI6BB.

Pass predictions indicate we can use FO-29, AO-27, and AO-7.

I'll concentrate mostly on the linear birds, as I "kinda sorta" don't 
want to expose the Scouts to the pandemonium of an FM satellite on the 

I *will* listen, though, and if it doesn't sound too crowded, I'll try 
and make some FM contacts, too.

We also have a couple of great ISS passes, but I don't know what mode 
the ham station on the ISS will be in that weekend.

Hope to work some of you from the IOWA!

73, Jim  KQ6EA
