I will be on the following passes as K3P from Washington, DC this
evening and tomorrow (September 23rd UTC):

02:32Z - 02:45Z AO-73
11:10Z - 11:22Z XW-2E (or LilacSat-2, possibly)
12:45Z - 12:55Z XW-2E (or LilacSat-2, possibly)
17:08Z - 17:23Z FO-29
18:50Z - 19:09Z FO-29
20:36Z - 20:54Z FO-29
21:52Z - 22:02Z XW-2E (or LilacSat-2, possibly)
23:25Z - 23:37Z XW-2E (or LilacSat-2, possibly)
23:22Z - 23:36Z SO-50

I will not work the AO-7 Mode B passes tomorrow unless there's a
request to do so, since I am supposed to be doing some work in the
afternoon (teleworking as Downtown DC will be a little jammed)! See my
Twitter account (@PRStoetzer) to determine whether or not I'll be
working XW-2E or LilacSat-2 during the passes of the new Chinese


Paul, N8HM
