I am sending my greetings to all of you from Shanghai, where I participate at the Ham Radio Expo.
It was a great experience to get in contact with the Chinese hams and to promote my linear transponder and also explain more about amateur satellites (which is still not very known to most hams here).
I have given a presentation on the first and also on the second day. Twice, as there was a great interrest among the hams to get some more information about the satellite topic :o)
I am sure there will be some more hams interrested in amateur satellites at this side of the globe...
Unfortunatly I didn't see to many foreign hams, but I was lucky to meet Masato Shibayama, JA7JZS of the Japanese Amateur Satellite Association. We had a nice talk about satellites, and exchanged some new ideas. I also met one Dutch HAM, PA0RWH, which was also nice so far away from home :o)
For the ICOM fans I also checked for the new IC-9100 but it was not presented at this ham expo.
The only thing the ICOM people could tell me is that it might be available at the next year expo, which is quiet some time to go...
Many 73 from Shanghai,
William Leijenaar, PE1RAH
