Actually Frank, only the center of NA is left out. I see possible windows
from Vegas/Spokane west and Cincinatti/Indy east assuming both sides can
work to the horizon. This covers the major population centers quite well.
I'd say most WILL have a shot, especially if they can go portable to a good
low horizon or high elevation location.

Look at tonight at 0135Z 11/3/2003. The entire east coast from Tallahassee
to Chicago has a window.
