Re: AO-27

Excellent pass of 27 over Mid-America.  Worked n5afv, w2rs, n0zhe and 
ve7wfg.  Heard k04ma.

It was slightly confusing because SO-50 and AO-27 literally were less than 
1 degree in azimuth apart, so there was a lot of cross feeding going 
on.  Still, nice to see 27 back in action, if even only for a few minutes.
