Excellent the pass received few minutes ago with my home made arrow antenna on my vacation site by the Mediterranean shore at JN00DF in Spain.
The maximum elevation was only 8 degrees but I could record the voice message and SSTV transmision comfortably up to three times meanwhile the sat passed above my deep sea blue horizon....
I was so excited that I was near to start to shout out!!
Now I will try to decode the SSTV and listen carefully to the voice message for writing it down for QSL details.
Congratulations and thanks to control team for this historical event. A great leap indeed 40 years ago that now we can live again.

Thanks again and good luck.

73, EA4DUT, Angel
