Hi Nick. I never knew you operated with an Arrow antenna inside the
house! What a signal. You were my 15th contact back on 10/29/09 when I
just started playing with the birds. I used an Arrow antenna, standing
outside with one Yaesu FT-60 HT running 5 watts on 1/2 duplex. It was
on AO-51. What a satellite. It, along with AO-27 were some great times
on FM. I think we worked 40 times over the years. I sure hope we get
to work more in the future. It is always nice talking to you Nick.

As some may know, I operated from a second floor room in the northeast corner of our Vermont home, using an Arrow antenna indoors. It worked remarkably well, especially on the linear transponders in directions from north to south. West was a challenge due to the building, but Europe was a sweet spot. It was a great run, I now have over 1500 grids confirmed. Thanks to everyone on the birds, especially the rovers!
