The next several weeks should be very exciting for satellite users across
North and South America as well as Europe.
Starting tomorrow, the CY9C DXpedition will be QRV from St. Paul Island
with great footprints across Europe and North America and it was announced
last night that the YX0V DXpedition to Aves Island, scheduled for August
31st - September 10th, will include satellite operations as well (
http://www.amsat.org/?p=5436). The Caribbean location and flat island
terrain should provide excellent footprints across North and South America.
It's wonderful to see major DXpeditions incorporating satellite activity
into their plans with K1N last year and now two back to back this year.
Let's hope this trend continues. I would encourage all satellite operators
to support these DXpeditions and make it clear in your comments that you
are supporting them due to the inclusion of satellite operations. And
please be respectful and courteous when they are on the satellites. Let's
show them the best of the amateur satellite community with hope that future
DXpeditions will see these examples and also incorporate satellite
