Re: Satellites for Field Day



Jack,
It is refreshing to see some messages on the BB  that have substance.
 AO7 still works even though you may not know what mode it comes up in each
pass.

I am also getting ready for field day Sat operations.  In the past  I used
AO40 and UO14.
Good Luck on Field day and I hope we can keep the BB to it real intent.
