    Looking forward to a 2m EME attempt! And maybe catch them on HF but my antennas there are marginal!

    My new 14 antenna EME array should suck them off the moon just fine.

    Why in the heck do they plan to operate in the extra class band portion on most bands? If I was a General looking for them on SSB and donated I would want a refund!

    Looks like on 40.... perhaps that's the only place they are allowed in that region?

    Their band plan lists where they will transmit. It's common for DX and DXpeditions to transmit outside the American General Class band, but receive inside the band. I can't promise that's what they'll do, but it's what I'd expect.

    And btw, nice show, Neil!

    They won’t be on air for another 6 weeks. That’s plenty of time to upgrade.
