I have had multiple requests to make it to FK09 and I managed to secure a ride to the EK99/FK09 line here on Little Cayman for the next two nights. I am returning to Grand Cayman on Thursday the 6th at noon time.

The last time I operated from FK09 many years ago it was mayhem on SO-50 and few stations managed to get through. I had a great couple of passes on FO-29 from Grand Cayman a few days ago and I really appreciated the very orderly contacts during that pass. I hope we can do the same again this time.
