First contact made on AO-92 with L-band uplink. RX sig was strong with 58-59 from the sat with max 29° EL.
I didn't change my polarisation on the dwnlink but it looks and sounds FB during qso with SP8CGR.

I am using MASPRO WHS-32N ant system, the 2m part, for RX and a homemade 2*19el crossyagi on 23cm with 5W RHCP fixed. I will try again the next pass this evening with another yagi( i have plenty) for the uplink.
My main sat antennas are pc-controlled, but i had to correct the uplink antenne manually because it is not on the tower yet.
TRX is Kenwood TS-790e for RX+TX.

Good job for this sat, and finally another with L-band.
