A recording of the AO-51 pass on 20Feb2010 at 2259z is on my
This was a very busy pass with ND9M/p in EL07/EL08 and WD9EWK/p in DM22
at the Yuma Hamfest. Many of you are not full duplex and don't know what you

N5AFV, KD4N0Q, WA4HFN, N8RO, WA5KBH, KP4WK, KF4OTG, N5UXT, KB0RZD,
ND9M/P, K4YYL, K7NN, KB0RZE, KB8ZGL, N1XED, KJ4PSU, VA3BL, N8MH,
?4NDA/HH, KD8CAO, N2BX, WD9EWK/P KZ4WAT, KB9AVO, KD0HKR, WB1AAT,
N0JE, ?OF, ?QYH, VE7CNA, KE7DOV. K8YSE

AO-51 is a great bird. Those who had a hand in designing and
building this satellite can be very proud of their accomplishment.
