VK9XW operation..

Fellow Satellite DXers,

If some of you out there have an opportunity to work the Christmas Is.
expedition, VK9XW,
PLEASE ask them to at least give a try for N.A. at their AOS on Oct. 8th,
2003, 1500 UTC.
The rocks and palm trees mentioned on their website might not actually be
as much of a problem as they think it is.  Sometimes things which appear
to block RF actually do not.  This is such a rare opportunity for
satellite DXers to work a new one and it may be a very long time until
someone goes there again with satellite equipment.  It's also amazing
what CW can do even if SSB cannot get through.  Just ask that they give
it a try.  They and we might be pleasantly surprised at the results. 
They will have very favorable low squint angle.  Thank you for any help
in working a new one.  Much appreciated.

73 to all....   Frank, K0BLT
