Hawaii is possible but passes on AO-51 need to be close to the 1/2 way point between the west coast and Hawaii.
Last September my wife & I went to Oahu and I operated from the entrance to Diamond Head. I was able
to make a contact with Glenn, AA5PK, in Texas from there. We figured that we were both around 1 degree over the horizon.
All I had was my trusty Arrow, IC-W32A and Hamtronics 450 preamp. Pretty amazing what these sats can do!
But don't do as I find myself forgetting to do too often - keep those keps up to date!
