I'm tentatively planning to activate CM86 next Thursday on AO-27. It's part of Santa Cruz, plus a tiny town called Davenport, and an awful lot of ocean. Here are my predictions in UTC: AOS MEL LOS* Duration Max El. 19Feb98 18:02:37 18:09:53 18:17:09 00:14:31 23 98 171 33.4 SFBay Thu 19:42:24 19:49:24 19:56:23 00:13:59 0 292 224 27.7 SFBay * TEPR shutoff is currently about 10 minutes after nominal AOS for me Regulars west of the Divide (especially those i worked last time i was in CM86), please wait for the second pass, out of consideration for those who can't work the other pass. E-mail would be appreciated if i haven't worked you recently, so i'll readily recognize your callsign and allow more time for others. -- KD6PAG (Networking Old-Timer, RF newbie) P.S. Newcomers to AO-27, please make sure you can copy callsigns before transmitting; there's always *someone* on for North American passes.
