Hi all,
The beacon was heard over India during 16:45 pass. The max elevation  
was 54 Deg. The beacon was pretty strong and 5-6 VU stations copied  
with no big set up. All the stations copied using "J" and "Slim Jims".

Sure, XW 1 is going to open up a new interest in satellite working and  
truly an amazing "New Year Gift" from AMSAT-CHINA. Thank you guys for  
that wonderful gift.
