> "The team should be off Clipperton around 5AM Tuesday morning, February 29,
> 2000 (California Time). They will then look for a landing spot on the
> island. The search for a landing spot could take a day just finding a
> reasonable approach to the island. Clipperton has very high surf which
> strikes a reef surrounding the island thus making the approach very
> difficult and dangerous.
> 
> The team has indicated that they plan to come on with multiple stations to
> ease the pileups. If they can get the site set up, look around 0000Z, March
> 1 on 10/15/20 meters.
> 
> They have also indicated that the following satellites, AO-10, RS-13, UO-14,
> AO-27, SO-35 will be the ones they will be trying to use."

> Today (February 29th, 2000)at 0400Z they were at 11 39N & 109 32W
