Thanks to Shane, NV7SW, in Nevada, I have now worked 49 states on the
satellites. All that remains is Hawaii, a significant challenge. AO-7
is the only satellite with a footprint that reaches both the DC area
and Hawaii; suitable passes generally occur every other day, with
maximum elevations of 1-1.5 degrees on both ends.
I can arrange to set up a station that can work AO-7 down to the
horizon within the allowable distance from my home QTH under WAS
rules, but I need to find someone in Hawaii who can also work AO-7
down to the horizon.
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks and 73,
