Yes, SO-50 is a zoo but also works as a way to make a quick succession of
contacts. Only Linear pass we will be able to do is AO-73 so hope to see
you there. What will be your callsign, W4UDO? If so we will definitely
give a call.

W4UOO (me) and my Son KK4HMC (Jacob) will be there on the Sats with you and
with some of our Troops Scouts from the Gulf Ridge Council ... Tampa Bay
Area of Florida.
We prefer linear birds to the FM one...
See you Saturday !
