Re: VK/ZL ops?

Phil & Keith,
I am traveling in the US and Europe over the next two weeks, but when I return "home" to Darwin in mid-March I hope to have my ticket from the ACA in the mailbox (requested VK8OE).  My work schedule is hectic, but don't be surprised to hear me on FO-29 one Sunday soon... maybe mobile, as my apartment balcony is fully blocked to the south.

Working LEO satellites from this part of the world, Howard, is really a test 
of one's persistence. As much as it pains me to say so, there is practically 
no activity on any of the LEO satellites.

Although the situation is disheartening, it is possible to hear another voice. 
I occasionally make contact with one of three other stations via FO-29 and 
two others are sometimes available on SO-50. I haven't made contact with 
anyone on AO-07 for quite some time.

Your best bet is to arrange a contact for a specific time.
