Re: FO-29 schedule Jan. 2008



Hi Auke and Mineo,

I offered assistance from AMSAT-NA Operations several months ago, suggesting 
we could enable the satellite while over North America as well. I received 
no reply. Perhaps it is a language issue? If anyone has contacts within 
JAMSAT or JARL that can assist, please contact me directly at 
ko4ma@amsat.org .

73, Drew KO4MA
