I was a hardcore user of AO-13 back when I was in Puerto Rico, but AO-51 was my favorite satellite mostly brcause it was easy to work and did it from my car. Most of my QSO on it was on my drive back home from work. And it was fun to do.
So sad to see it go, but it was fun and the memories and stories will be around for many years.
