Mini-DXpedition to Santa Catalina Island (DM03/IOTANA-066)

I will be on Santa Catalina Island (IOTA NA-066, near Los Angeles)
from Friday afternoon 4 May through Tuesday mid-morning 8 May, and
will work J-FM satellites as my time (and horizons) permit.  Monday 
is the best time to try if you can only fit in one or two passes.
I will be busiest with other things on Friday evening, Saturday, and
Sunday mornings, but hope to pick up at least one AO-27 pass on those

Passes will be recorded.  Unless i ask for a fill, you need only give
your callsign (and grid), phonetically if i don't talk to you routinely.  
If things get really busy, i'll take callsign with grid squares in
groups of three, "net style".

PLEASE if you are a 'regular' on satellite in the Pacific or Mountain
time zones, please don't call me on trancontinental passes until i've
worked all the folks east of the Mississippi (unless this is the only
pass you can work). Postponing any routine 'hellos' would also be much
appreciated on such passes.  

I'll send everyone cards (as that's easier for me than trying to figure
out who needs or wants one).  SASE are not necessarily, i only ask that
you work me near home (CM87 or CM88) if i don't already have your grid
square (as these don't count for VUCC).

P.S.  I will be activating CM86 (Santa Cruz) again on the first Saturday 
in June and i am still considering CM79, probably on June 23 or 24.

P.P.S.  If enough folks think this kind of posting should go to a separate
list, i'll look into setting one up.
