Through general consensus would it be possible to establish a unofficial "DX watering hole". Time is the essential limiting factor when attempting DX contacts on AO-7, or at times on FO-29. Elevating angles are usually less than 4 degrees. My QTH (near Seattle, Wa. CN87) has a ever so small opportunity to parts of N. Europe. Essentially, use a given frequency (downlink) only when the satellite is less than 4-5 degrees. As I recall there was such a concept on AO-40 (sobsob), it worked quite well. Your thoughts.
