I have corrections to make on my previous post.  It looks like there will be
two passes on SO67 only.  HO68 will not be on and SO67 will be on during
passes according their schedule and it is the satellite that will be on over
the Americas.
  SO-67  AOS 1938 Local / 0338 UTC
  SO-67  AOS 2110 Local / 0510 UTC

Will have to see if we can both or only one.  It all depends on the 
meeting schedule.

Thanks to Mark for info on the corrections.
