Thanks for the signal report! That was a 75-degree VO-52 pass
out here in DM44ha, and at times my little FT-817ND receive
radio was up to S-7 and S-8 as the satellite went by. I'm not
making lots of SSB satellite QSOs, but I am making QSOs.
Little by little, I am improving my skills in dealing with
these satellites. Still fun!
I did not see an e-mail address for KG7P in a quick search.
Not a problem here - Stan said he was going to QSL, and I
will certainly send my card his way for another VO-52 QSO
in my log.

Are you going with computer control, or just manually doing
that initially? Have you tried AO-7 and Delfi-C3 (DO-64), or
just VO-52 so far? I don't remember if you have preamps in
your setup - do you?
Good luck, and hope to work you on the SSB birds soon. You
can see my portable SSB satellite setup in 2 weeks, at the
upcoming ARRL Southwestern Division convention (12-14
September). I'll be on VO-52 as well as the FM birds doing
demonstrations during the convention.
