I remember hearing this transmission

*On Christmas eve a couple of decades (Cirus 1990's) or so ago, I recall
how our AMSAT-Germany friends uploaded a beautiful rendition of "Silent
Night" to their AO-21 FM Amateur Radio transponder (which was, at the time,
riding piggyback on a Russian satellite). Then, for then next 24 hours or
so, we all got to listen to that wonderful music emanating from AO-21's 2m
FM downlink as the satellite went round and round our Earth. I hope to
enjoy again WA1ZMS transmitting Christmas music on 486 khz. tomorrow

*Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving
safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in
broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming -
"WOW, What a ride!"
