Greetings, all

I'll be operating from the USS IOWA on 20 October from 1700 UTC to 2300 UTC in support of this year's JOTA event for the Boy Scouts.

I'll be active on AO-7 and FO-29, using the callsign NI6BB.

There are two AO-27 passes available, but if it's extremely crowded I probably won't be active on it.

Here are the satellite passes I'll do my best be active on.

All times are UTC

FO-29    1838 to 1854
FO-29    2023 to 2039
AO-7      2210 to 2226

VO-52 will not be in sight during our 4 hour operating window, or I'd be on that one, too.

In addition, there are some AO-27 and ISS passes. It's uncertain if AO-27 will be back in service, and I haven't been able to find what the schedule is for the ISS.

If AO-27 *is* in service, I will at least listen. If I hear the usual weekend pandemonium, I will not attempt to use it.

AO-27    1943 to 1954
ISS         2052 to 2059
AO-27    2120 to 2135
ISS         2227 to 2237

Pass times listed are from my AOS to my LOS. I we have a mutual window, please listen for NI6BB, and I'll try to work as many stations as I can.
