Ari, TF3ARI, has been worked on AO-51!  Ari first
appeared on AO-51 on 24 October.  He almost had a
qso with KC9ELU.  An email to Ari revealed that he
was using a TS2000 and a vertical antenna.

After not hearing Ari for two weeks I emailed him for
a schedule on 15 November.  He was there and we had a
good qso.  Since then he has installed a UHF preamp. He
was on AO-51 at 1030z and 1208z today.  VA7VW reported
working Ari later.  Ari also worked several others this morning.

Since North America is always near the horizon for him,
his vertical antenna and preamp work well. Not many trees
in Iceland!  Watch for Ari on early morning weekend passes
of AO-51. My guess is that he will be on again Sunday
morning 22Nov at 0951z and 1129z.
