Hi all from CQ Editor Rich Moseson, W2VU:

The 50th anniversary of the launch of Sputnik is coming up in October, and
we are currently working on our October issue. Many of you remember the
launch well, and of course, hams were in the vanguard of listening for
those beeps from above. We'd like to collect a representative sampling of
your first-hand recollections to weave into an article for our October
issue. Plus, we'd like to hear if this experience had a significant impact
on your choice of careers, etc. - in short, did listening for Sputnik
change your life? If so, how?

Please respond as soon as possible by e-mail directly to a special mailbox
we've set up at <sputnik at cq-amateur-radio.com>.

Many thanks in advance and 73,

Rich W2VU
