A new amateur radio satellite to play with. One with a limited power budget, so availability will be an issue.
Also, make sure you don't use more power than needed so the transponder is available for everyone and the power use is minimal.

It would be nice to do a Sat pass at or 30.2710,-86.00000

It is grid square boundary EM70/EM60.which is at N. Walton Lakeshore Drive and the beach. Beach access could also be made via Camp Helen. So it would be a twofer for those that collect Sat grid squares.

+Peter Goodhall gave a talk at the last Amsat-UK colloqium about his portable (or not so portable, but from remote locations) amateur satellite operations. The talk was recorded by the BATC and made available on Youtube.

It's a real nice talk, I enjoyed it.
