Pass schedules plans the next 24 hours:

10/21/2015 2100-2130Z - EM25/26 Line near Coweta, OK  for a AO7(B) 
Central US footprint, and a FO29 Western US Footprint
10/21/2015 2300-2340Z - EM16 for AO7(B), XW2E, XW2F, LilacSat2  (If I 
make good time thru Tulsa)
10/22/2015 0030-0100Z - EM16 for XW2E, XW2F, LilacSat2
10/22/2015 1345-1415Z - EM17/EM18 Line Near Newton, KS for XW2E, XW2F, 

I was really hoping AO85 would be up and working, as several of my stop 
points included passes, but I understand the engineering team needs to 
do their thing. I may also work some impromptu EM17 passes later tonight 
and early tomorrow morning, but that will depend on my non-sat activities.

Plans 24-72 hours :

After that I'll be heading west towards Garden City, KS where I will be 
spending the night. I plan on stopping in EM08/EM07 and DM98/DM97 for 
SO50/FO29 at different points on 10/22/15 as the afternoon progresses. I 
will be in Holly, CO Friday and Saturday, and DM88/DM87 will likely be 
activated on those days.

Plans 72 Hours+ :

Watch Twitter @KG5CCI for latest updates. I try and post as far ahead of 
time as I can, but sometimes it's as little as 15 minutes prior.
