Hey  everyone,

At 0204 UTC on 23 January, KL7XJ and I had a quick  contact on HO-68 in FM.
At the time, the satellite was below 4.5 degrees  and descending for me. I'm
thrilled to put state No. 49 in the log with my  handheld station - a Yaesu
VX-7R and Elk dual-band log periodic. I never  expected to get more than the
lower 48 in my satellite log with the HT, so  this is a very pleasant
surprise. My thanks to AMSAT-China for HO-68, and  to Dale for being there
when it counted.

73 to  all,

Tim -  N3TL
