The question remains. Did anyone work them on FO-29 ?

A cooperative effort from everyone would be needed to maximize the QSOs. If
everyone has their power cranked to 11 and they keep calling, you'll never
hear the 5 watt signal of K1N when they attempt to respond to someone.

That's probably too much to ask though. Maybe the only way to do a satellite
DXpedition in an entity as rare as this is to have everyone register their
interest, then assign skeds and have the DXpedition operator call through
the list pre-prepared for each pass.
