I received an e-mail from Bernardo XE2HWB, a long-time VHF/UHF operator
based in La Paz in southern Baja California who has also worked satellites. 
Bernardo is leaving tomorrow to go out to the Sierra de la Laguna in grid 
DL43.  He plans on working SO-50, FO-29, and VO-52 passes on Saturday
(27 July) and Sunday (28 July), although he did not specify which passes 
he would try to be on over those two days.  Along with his satellite work, 
XE2HWB will also be on 6m. 

It's been a while since XE2HWB has activated rarely-heard grids on the Baja
California peninsula, and in the past he would confine his satellite activity to 
the FM satellites.  It is nice to see his plan to try working FO-29 and VO-52
along with our remaining FM satellite.  

Good luck, and 73!
