Unfortunately, there is no known cure for the bug that just bit you. You
will have to put up with the side effects for the rest of your life. ;-)

Subject: [amsat-bb] AO-51 is Working Fine - My First Satellite QSO Ever!
I am so excited right now that I can barely type because I'm dancing a jig.
AO-51 was working fine for the 2158Z, 4-13-2011 pass over my QTH (EM95md)
which I made my FIRST successful satellite QSO ever with K8YSE. Thank You
My apologies to K8YSE for getting a bit tongue-tied but I was so excited to
him repeat my call sign back and ask for the QSL that I about swallowed the
What makes it even better was the fact that I make it a point of recording
passes so I have an audio recording of my first AO-51 QSO.
A big thanks to K6LCS (Clint) and his web
site http://web.me.com/clintbradford/k6lcs/Home.html for all the tips and
inspiration to give satellites a try.
