1344 Z pass this morning we moved to the roof of the villa for a clear
view east and had great sigs in and out of the sat, but there was no one
else there. I guess the foot print went up the middle of the Atlantic.
We shuffled operators around so we were on 6 meters and the sat at the
same time. (Some good contacts on 6M, mostly 50.102 CW)
1525 Z pass
We will not try the 2117Z 1 degree pass tonight.
Tomorrow we will have a headphone splitter in line so the antenna guy
can listen and do a better job of staying with the bird. Passes
tomorrow 1831Z and 2017Z.
A pointer to an online tracking program that shows the sat footprint
would be appreciated.
Weather continues very hot and windy. 85F and 85 pct humidity, 20 MPH
with higher gusts. Wish it cooled off at night like in Colo.
