Isn't it wonderful that the AO-51 committee responds as well as it does and
STILL gets it's lumps? I read some of the threads and all I can say is
Keep up the good work while fighting those sharks off with the other
Subject: [amsat-bb] Echo Madness
Having been on the bird on the night the recording was made (yes you can
hear my feeble call sign in there a couple of times) I have to say, it was
no worse than 40 meters earlier in the day with the WPX SSB contest going
on. The whistles were a bit over the top.
I am new to the satellites ( 3 successful passes ) so I am just learning the
etiquette and procedures.
It has been interesting over the past few weeks putting the station together
to be able to get into the satellite. I have learned quite a bit already.
The first thing I learned was that I didn't know anything about how to
communicate on the satellites!!! ;-)
I have enjoyed the few contacts I have made and look forward to more. I
appreciate any and all assistance in the endeavor!!
