I'm surprised to hear VO-52 is underused bird over NA.
VO-52 is very crowded over JA. Recently, many CW portable stations
QRV from everywhere in JA. They are hopping each orbit and QRV from
different place. I made over 100 very short CW QSOs this month.
VO-52 is easy sat for CW station. Some portable stations are using
simple V/UHF dual-band mobile whip antenna, and win the good

>I never hear anyone talking about vo52. I was there aos to los cqing myself. The sat
reminds me of the old rs 10 days. A good sized bandwidth and enough time for a couple
short enjoyable qso's. See you there.
