Congrats! Yes that first contact is a rush without a doubt! I just started myself little more than a month ago, and the rush is still there! Biggest rush thus far for me was the ISS crew contact using simplex, to Col Doug Wheelock. Hope to hear you on the birds soon! I'll be working passes as I can as well this weekend.
