For me this evening, at 19.55 utc orbit, was the first contact through
the linear transponder of XW-1 (HO-68).
The downlink signal was impressive strong from each stations worked,
SQ7DQX, SV1EEK, OZ1MY, PE0SAT, PA3GUO 2E1EUB, ON5UE,......
with max elevation 80°.
I have only seen the polarization change often during orbit...
Congratulations for this great job from the Chinees Amsat !!
WONDERFUL SATELLITE, THANK YOU !
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year !!

Oggetto: [amsat-bb] HO68 is GREAT
HO68 (XW-1) linear transponder is great.
I worked ST2NH, ON, I, F, OE, SP, and G
The max elivation was 67° and i had to reduce the power from 30°. I heard
distortion on full power.
I could work the sat from 1° elevation with the 8 el horizontal polarisation.
This is a great job from the Chinees hams. Congrats.
