I just worked an FO-29 pass as W1AW/7, and plan on working at
least 3 more passes.  First up, an AO-73 pass around 0416 UTC
that will cover the continental USA.  As that pass wraps up, there 
is a very shallow western FO-29 pass I plan to try.  I should be 
able to barely hear the downlink around 0426-0431 UTC, in case 
anyone is on from Hawaii or near the US west coast.  Then a 
shallow SO-50 pass at 0520 UTC.  I might stay up for the western
AO-73 pass at 0552 UTC, if anyone on the west coast will be up 
around that time (please e-mail me directly or send a tweet to 
@WD9EWK to let me know if you want to try for a QSO on that 
pass).  I will not be able to work the later SO-50 passes, but 
almost nobody has been on any of those passes that approach 
0700 UTC or after.  

John K8YSE/7 should be on passes during the day Tuesday, to 
wrap up the W1AW/7 Arizona activity for this week.  Arizona gets
the W1AW/7 call again in late August, going through the Labor 
Day weekend into early September, and I plan on requesting the
use of the call for satellite activity.  

Thanks again for all the contacts as W1AW/7 this week.  Again,
this has been a fun week, even if we are working on some passes
to make even one QSO in 10-20 minutes.  It's been good to make 
sure that W1AW/7 has been on lots of passes, giving satellite 
operators a chance to log this special call.
