I will attempt to activate Cape Hatteras National Seashore SS04 and grid
FM25 on the 1949 UTC AO-7 pass. It's 88 degrees elevation. I say attempt
because I've never even tried to work a linear bird. I'll be half duplex
with an Arrow and Icom IC-706 Mkiig. Please be gentle and patient ;-)

I also got permission to operate from the top of  the memorial statue at
Wright Brothers National Memorial NM29. I'm going to activate that on the
1254 UTC SO-50 pass tomorrow. It's 81 degrees elevation.
