Re: N2M at the Millville Airshow



Sounds Great! But a suggestion. Don't plan on FO-20, because in all
likelyhood it will not be on. Do however plan on AO-7 because you have a
fair shot of it being in mode A or Mode B, and do plan on SO-50 because it
will be working, and the freqs are the same as AO-27, available "on" times
are longer, less crowded, and passes in the afternoon instead of night
(AO-27 is on at night now, not the mornings).

Just a suggestion.....
