Telemetry came thru loud and clear.

Transponder was strong, however I had to correct uplink frequency to about + 4 kHz. at the beginning of the pass. Kept changing too, so at the end of the pass uplink frequency had to be + 5.2 kHz. to hear myself properly; and that is with doppler correction enabled. Normally when keps are correct and doppler is enabled, uplink frequency correction stays stable. Probably 2013-066B not the correct Keps ?

Brief contact with VK5EI, but then lost contact as antennas had to swing around. Also heard VK2ZAZ.

Hi All

Good signals from AO-73 over VK tonight. Stations heard through the transponder were ZL2BX Alan and VK4CBW Wal.
