This is really exciting, Michael! We're delighted that the FM
transponder is working. With such a big footprint it will be a
remarkable experience for newcomers and oldtimers alike.

For my part, my QTH in Maritime (Eastern) Canada will have a 3 deg.
elevation view to the XW-1 at the same time that Moscow, Russia has a
3 deg. elevation view. Imagine that FM to FM!
