It was my pleasure & thanks for giving it a try.  You signals were 
weak, but 100% copy on the 2nd pass.   I'm glad we were able to make 
it happen!  This was my first contact with Alaska via AO-7 (all 
others have been via AO-51) and a new grid for me.

Hope to work you and/or other Alaskan stations (W1AW/KL7) via 
satellite over the next few days/week during the Alaska Hamfest/ARRL 
Alaska Convention.
