HO-68 was on this morning with a North America/Europe footprint,
but the only station heard was 2E0BFT.  After the window with
Europe closed I found another station, WB8IMY, calling CQ with
a nice signal.  I knew the callsign was familiar but it wasn't
from hearing it on the satellites.  It was from reading QST

Steve, WB8IMY, is the Editor of QST Magazine and was operating
from home with his TS2000 and Eggbeater antennas.  We had a nice
chat and the reception was excellent.  You never know what you
just might happen to snag on the birds!  The recording is on my
website, http://www.papays.com/sat

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

John K8YSE
