Re: SUNSAT



hi hans,
i guess that turning on ao-35 at 7:00 utc over europe is pretty useless,
especialy over western europe where we have no time diference to utc. this
means we would have to get up earlier that when one goes to work. ;)
is there a chance you could turn on the bird in the afternoon ?

regards,
luis
