Heard LOTS of stations on the first passes of AO-27, SO-50, and AO-51 (V/U)
that obviously didn't read the new rules,
making one contact after another, even after being told "only ONE contact
per FM satellite!"
I did manage to make my one contact each, and then focused on AO-07 and
VO-52 for the rest of the contest. Made 20
more contacts on those. AO-07 is very interesting to listen to when she's
being hit with too much power on CW... hearing someone's
voice being "bounced" by the ditty-dots!
Sure did miss FO-29!!!
