Well, Fernando, if you are lucky enough to make a sat qso with Clint, don't hold yer breathe for a QSL card. Despite SASE and email promises, good old 'Clint' never got around to it x3 (2010).
Oh well, made the VUCC anyway..
p.s. Clint, don't need it now

Any plans to demo the satellites on this presentation? Some of us are always available to be the voices at the other end of the satellite (AO-85, SO-50, FO-29, etc).
It will also give us an opportunity to add you to our logs. I've been doing this since October and haven't heard you on one of the birds yet.
