    Sigurd said, "Iridium flares would be more challenging to observe this way.
    I think we need to come up with a list of people on the flare path and
    organize days before the event. It would also help if we use a broadcast
    network (VHF/CB/SW ?) in addition to cell (person to person)communications."
    
    Because of the critical placement of participants and because of our
    dispersed nature, getting a group of SeeSaters to observe a particular flare
    one after the other would probably be a monumental task to say the least.
    However, getting a few local observers in an astronomy club or clubs to
    observe one over a few dozens of miles may not be out of line.
