        Thanks to all who expressed an interest in the qso between WC7V and 
RN1NW on ao7b.  I have hoped to make this contact for over 30 years.  The 
fact that it happened is thanks to Oscar 7 and Ted, RN1NW was 559 even as 
ao7 approached his horizon.  The satellite was ascending at my qth and at 
about 3 degrees at the end of our qso. The QSO took place on orbit #60960 at 
16:08Z.   I had heard RN1NW a couple of days prior but didn't make the 
contact.  Because of ao7's history and bright future, I think any contact on 
this satellite is a record.   Thanks again to RN1NW.
