Thanks for the signal report!  That was a 75-degree VO-52 pass 
out here in DM44ha, and at times my little FT-817ND receive
radio was up to S-7 and S-8 as the satellite went by.  I'm not 
making lots of SSB satellite QSOs, but I am making QSOs.  
Little by little, I am improving my skills in dealing with 
these satellites.  Still fun!  

I did not see an e-mail address for KG7P in a quick search.
Not a problem here - Stan said he was going to QSL, and I 
will certainly send my card his way for another VO-52 QSO 
in my log.

Are you going with computer control, or just manually doing
that initially?  Have you tried AO-7 and Delfi-C3 (DO-64), or
just VO-52 so far?  I don't remember if you have preamps in
your setup - do you?  

Good luck, and hope to work you on the SSB birds soon.  You
can see my portable SSB satellite setup in 2 weeks, at the 
upcoming ARRL Southwestern Division convention (12-14 
September).  I'll be on VO-52 as well as the FM birds doing 
demonstrations during the convention.
