Hello Mark and all the people of the list,

I will be nice to hear you on the sats! Madrid is on zone 4 so your call be
more accurate EA4/N8MH and if you're in Madrid your locator will be around

Hope to work you on every sat!

Regards from Salamanca, Spain!

Asunto: [amsat-bb] EA/N8MH QRV on satellites from Madrid, Spain during

Hello European satellite friends,

It is possible that I will be QRV from Madrid, Spain on FO-29, VO-52,
AO-73, SO-50, and AO-7 (?) while the family is on holiday.    This is a
very low priority part of the trip, and I can't predict when I'll be able to
get on the air (limitations of being in the city with poor view to sky,
etc.).  But I am going to try at least a few passes one way or another!

The opportunity is from around Dec 24 until Jan 2.   My station will be
very simple--FT-817, Elk antenna, and a hand mic.   Working half-duplex on
the SSB birds will be very challenging for me!   I am spoiled by fully
automated station operations.

So if you hear EA/N8MH, please be patient and say hello :)    It may be the
only chance for a QSO with long time friends across the big pond...

Should I be able to post an email note in advance of a specific
pass/satellite, I will do so.  But it might not be possible.
