Hi All,

Yes a great signal from AO51 this evening on an almost overhead pass. As 
well as the message it was interesting to hear the bursts of repetitive QRM 
on the L band uplink. From previous ATV experience I could instantly 
identify it as coming from one or more of the "en route" aeronautical high 
power radars that we share the band with over here.

Congratulations and thanks to everyone involved in organising the event!
