Today's departure started off with a disappointing run through DM02 when
I couldn't hear AO27 well at all. The satellite only got up to 6 degrees
at my QTH, but I've worked that satellite a lot of times at lower
elevations, so I really couldn't figure out why I had such difficulty.
The next pass was much better, although it didn't help the stations in
the eastern areas that were out of the footprint, but nearly two dozen
stations got DM02 in their logs.


I was able to put DM01 on the air for one full AO27 pass followed by
part of an AO51 pass during which my ship crossed into DM11; several
stations who'd worked me early in the pass called later in the same pass
after I crossed the grid line and got two grids! Later on, I was on from
DM10 as well.


For the oh-dark-thirty bunch, I'll be on FO29 tonight for the only pass
that I'll be on from DL19. Here's the schedule and the grids that I'm
looking (or hoping) to operate from tomorrow:
