Yes, It was a momentary lapse of memory on my part, cheerleading for linear
satellites & HEO's. I had a couple of nice contacts. One was the ops first
satellite contact ever, and on a linear bird no less. He handled the
doppler like an old pro. The other station was the first contact for him
on HO-68. We couldn't have talked that long on AO-51, it would have upset
everyone trying to pinch out a grid.
