Subject: [amsat-bb]  K4-LU QSO on AO7 

Gary (K4MF) and I (LU6QI) made several attempts during more than a 
month (we tried on more than 15 passes for sure) for a  QSO on AO7 in 
cw in Mode A or B. Finally on Jan 30, 2011 we succeed. We made a fine 
short qso in  Mode B at 2315 UTC during the orbit # 65714. It was a 
very clear copy with the satellite just above the horizon. The 
distance between Gary’s location (EL98JG) and mine (FF66TQ) is 
7024,45 Km.  I don’t know of any other qso between USA and Argentina 
on low altitude satellites, at least I never saw it reported on the 
AO7 Log.
