East Timor on AO40 Friday morning

I was informed the the East Timor AO40 operator will be attempting to work North America when AO40 rises over East Timor Friday morning.  Beacon +30 is the advertised frequency.  Hopefully on CW, considering the squint angle and range.

With alon/alat of 20/0, the squint angle will be about 27 degrees when AO40 rises at East Timor around 1230 UTC on Friday.  The squint angle gradually improves after that, as the east coast gradually goes out of the footprint.
