Omar XE1AO will be operating on the FM satellites from grid DK99wt 
between today and Friday (26 December).  This location is near Oro 
de Hidalgo in the state of Mexico, the Mexican state that virtually encompasses Mexico City.  Omar has an FT-60R HT and a handheld Yagi 
with him as his satellite station.

Omar was on the AO-51 pass tonight around 0100 UTC.  He was hoping 
to make more contacts, but unfortunately he was not able to answer 
most of the stations trying to call him with some stations talking
over others.   

Keep in mind that English is not Omar's primary language.  Please
remember to call him using the standard international phonetic
alphabet and digits ("four-three" for 43, not "forty-three") when 
trying to work him, and he will be happy to put a new grid in your
satellite log.
