Hi Joe,

Beginning from OSCAR-6 up to AO40 I have all my QSO recorded on
a professional tape recorder REVOX A77 using 1/4" tape winded in many
and many big coils each 10.63 " in diameter and so I can enjoy to hear time
to time the voice of my old satellite friends and as well the CW ROBOT
of the RS satellites.Before to start any QSO I mention on tape the name of
the satellite the orbit numbar and the date, just for record along with the
log on paper.
