We came to amateur satellites not because it was easy but for the challenge.  It’s always a thrill, even though it may be our 100th time thru SO-50, and after your tenth it better be full duplex!   It takes a few steps, depending on your equipment, to send an APRS compressed packet to DUCHIFAT-1 but it’s exciting because were leaving our comfort zone, the essence of amateur radio, and one more thing KC9ELU and myself are looking for more activity on NO-84, so leave the comfort of your chair and make some connections.
