The tests have VT celebrating.  We have been getting our act together while
our groundstation was taking down for maintenance since we were not
anticipating the launch.  HA HA HA.

The sun flares off the antennas are, in a word, awesome, but the gorgeous
views of earth are better than I had personally hoped for.

Thanks to our team the seemingly endless set of tweaks and knobs on this
camera aided ably by Jerry N0JY and the entire testing team, the settings
seem great.

I look forward to many more of these awesome pictures and our continued
relationship between VT and AMSAT.
