There is much to celebrate with the successful launch and early
commissioning of the XW-1 satellite!  Congratulations to Alan,
Michael, and the entire team---from construction, to launch, to
commissioning.  Your hard work is evident and appreciated by ham
operators around the world.

I had the priviledg of working N3TL on that first linear transponder
US pass, and the bird performed and sounded wonderful!  (thanks, Tim
:) )

I hope to be around to attempt the PBBS when it becomes active over
the US tody as well.

Best 73 to the XW-1/Hope-1 team!
