DM03 apparently is a bit on the rare side these days. I know there
are some who get on SO-50 from DM03, but may not work the most
shallow passes that reach the east coast. It may be more rare on the
SSB birds, and I'll check my log at home this weekend to see who I
have worked for my recent DM03 QSOs.

I was just out there two weeks ago, and had some requests to work
from DM03 instead of other grids between Phoenix and Los Angeles.
I'll be back out there in early April, and - depending on my travel, and
the needs/requests from other satellite operators - might be able to
make my trip home a less direct route. Or I can just work more
passes from DM03.
