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
