Just a quick follow-up on earlier messages about K1N on satellite. I spoke at length yesterday with Gregg, W6IZT and he agreed to refocus the team's satellite efforts on FO-29 in order to maximize their success. In support of that, AMSAT is providing an FT-817 and associated equipment, pass predictions, operational plan, and training. Due to the logistics of the expedition, this is the best solution allowing them to be on satellite, while maximizing the number and ease of QSOs possible.
Additional details are being worked out now, and will be shared via AMSAT ANS, amsat.org, AMSAT-bb email list, @AMSAT on Twitter, and the AMSAT North America Facebook group, when available.
Gregg did mention that the group is still in need of donations to fund the very expensive helicopter service to and from the island. If the chance to work K1N on satellite excites you, then please show your support by going to http://www.navassadx.com/ and clicking on the Donate button.
More to follow soon.
