I'm going to make a portable AO-7 satellite attempt this Tuesday July 10 from JN88na, at the spot where Slovakia, Hungary, and Austria touch each other.  Prior to 1989, this was part of the Iron Curtain, where the Communist regimes in Czechoslovakia and Hungary tried to keep their people from going to Austria.  Now, it is just a field with a border marker.

My AOS will be at 0933Z and North America will be in the window for several minutes.  Hope to work several of you, look for me at the high end of the passband.
