RE: YV0 satellite operations late july '04 ???

Hello Stan and all,

The next end of July (I hope any things to resolve) "AMSAT-YV" are invited 
for the "Radio Club Venezolano" to make together a only 10 days DXExpedition 
in YV0 "Aves Island" (8 place DxCountry), many bands and Satellites modes 
will be worked.

Large part of USA and others near countries hams may have the possiblility 
to make this new contact and work this "New Satellite Country" into many 
satellites footprints, we will carry a VHF-UHF crossyagi antenas, rotors and 
myself with others will be the satellite operators in this activity.

Hope the possibility to have available the AO-51 Echo satellite for work in 
this days.

Sorry for AO-40....impossible contact now.

Be tuned for news about this DxExpedition.

Hello the Net:

YV0 is a very rare DXCC entity and in the Caribbean, which puts it in
distance of a LEO. Maybe sat operations are possible  ?

YV0, AVES ISLAND. Word out of Japan reports that Mike, K6MYC, (via Lance,
W7GJ) states, "We leave Venezuela on July 28th on a 24 hour boat ride
to Aves. We may get on the air late on July 29th but don't count on it.
I'll try to have 14.345 com set up immediately with Quad loop and 100W.
We should have GPS timing working so we can take skeds for JT65A and
should be operational some time on July 30th. Best guess is we tear down
on August 7th or 8th. We are there for ten days, but I believe that includes
the two travel days. Keep an eye out for the official announcement on the
DX sites. To repeat, earlier equipment I will have: 1 KW (8877) on 6M and
2 x 41 feet yagis (M2 specials) (no elevation) and 350W on 2M and 15.7 dBd
yagi with elevation to about 45 degrees. Martti, OH2BH, is going and will
be taking his two, now famous, solid state HF KW amps, and at his request
were made special to get about 500W on 6M so we have a backup amplifier if
8877 has problems. Please pass this message to all 6M friends and all 2M
EMEr friends. Gary/KB8RQ and Dave/W5UN will probably have most consistant
comm to me on 14.345 and can handle questions and sked times. Try to make
2M JT65A skeds after my moon is over 25 degrees on my rise and before 25
degrees on my set. My above the noise random frequency will be 144.080
Xmit, and I will listen up 2 to 5 KHz for randoms. Grid square for YV0
is FK85eq."
