Thanks very much to you and the other stations who called me during the

It was a warm day, we had 34C here. We operated on the SO-50 and AO-27
passes from the sea walk of my city. The 1757z SO-50 pass was easy to work
and we had several contacts on it. Despite the 1919z AO-27 pass was very
crowed, we had some contacts also.

A lot of hams and satellite enthusiast attended the Demo. I answered several
questions and everybody was excited listening for the satellites. 

The Setup used for this satellite operation is what I regularly use when
operating portable. A mobile 2m FM radio with a homebrew 70cm/2m down
converter inside, with a strap around my neck. The 2m Kenwood TK-270 Handie
Talkie for transmitting, a 12V 7AH battery into a backpack to power up
everything , plus digital MP3 recorder to log the contacts. I hold the HT in
one hand and the homebrew Arrow Antenna with a homebrew preamplifier with
the other hand.

Tonight, we have another question/answer session on our local repeater. I am
truly sure that a new HAMSAT era is growing in my country!

Thanks for the contact with CO9FAA on the AO27 pass this
afternoon. How many watched your demonstrations?
