Re: Tower of Babel and fo-29 goes unused

 After working 2 AO-51 passes this AM, I also worked 2 FO-29 passes. I heard
maybe 15 to  20 people on the AO-51 pass, I heard and worked ONE station
(Paul,2E1EUB)UK DX on the FO29 pass! Almost 25 minutes of talking to myself.
I'm assuming there were many sat ops in front of their trancievers, who had
just finished working AO-51, but why they had no interest in working FO-29
with EU in the footprint is also beyond me. I guess this answers your
question Dave?
