Just wanted to say thank you to everyone for the satellite contacts during the ARRL Rocky Mtn. Convention in Taos.  We had hundreds of people stop by during the event with tons of interest in AMSAT and satellite operating.

Special thanks to Rodney, KC0ZHF, for his help during the passes.  Early on we had rotor control problems due to a bad USB<>serial interface driver.  Having Rodney there to make the contacts while I adjusted the AZ/EL was a lifesaver.   He also helped answer many of the questions coming our way about working the birds.

I put some pictures online of the station setup on my QRZ page.
