  While discussing the Pope Francis event with Pete W2JV, we both thought it
would be a good idea to also offer QSL cards for a packet contact with K2P
via the ISS. As I'm at my antenna restricted summer home location at the
Jersey shore for the rest of the week I would be able to concentrate on the
packet contacts only. I will be active every day in the morning and maybe at
night till the end of the event. I'm not going to do any portable SSB/FM ops
from here as I just went through a shoulder replacement and the packet
contacts will all I will be able to do.  Pete W2JV is covering the Lion's
share of SSB and FM voice contacts as K2P anyway.

   So I would be beaconing as K2P when available, all I would need is a 599
to which I would reply a 599 to, you would then be in the log as a K2P
packet contact. Everyone have fun, and enjoy this historical event, God
