Hi Luc, VE2DWE

It was very nice to contact you again in SSB this morning via FO-29
orbit 52287 with the bird at the apogee around MA= 128

I started to hear your carrier while you was tuning at 06:16 UTC and
from 06:16 to 06:22 UTC your SSB signal was very well readable over
the noise without QSB peaking to an S-7

Hope this new 6742.8 km QSO with you between FN36KA and JN70ES
in a LEO will trigger more transatlantic activity on this satellite waiting
for P3E Luc.

If someone like to try a transatlantic QSO via FO-29 this is the right
moment because during descending orbits the satellite foot print is actually
maximum with FO-29 near the apogee over the atlantic.
