Everything was proceeding marvelously last night at the Associated
Radio Amateurs of Long Beach (CA) meeting. A few folks showed up early
as we worked the 0053 GMT pass of AO-51 from outside the meeting room.
We then moved inside for my presentation.
Since my wife is in finishing a month-long trip to Tibet, I left my
phone "on" in buzz mode in case she called or sent text messages. In
the middle of my show, my phone buzzes. I calmly sneak a look at the
phone, and was pleasantly surprised to see a QSL from XE3DX David
Maciel - one of the contacts we made earlier!
Oh, the audience was properly impressed!
THANK YOU, David! And thanks to the others that made that demo a
