I hope as many of you as possible get a chance to work at least one of the satellites stations on the air for this JOTA weekend. I've worked two so far, and both contacts have been really cool. Both operators let scouts take the mic, and I'm sure those kids were thrilled to have stations calling them like they were.
I'm sending 2 QSL cards to both stations - 1 with a note of thanks to the operator(s) who made the effort to get some scouts into orbit this weekend, and another to the scout I spoke to. I hope those of you who work stations - especially if you get to talk to a scout - will do the same.
73 to all,
