Congratulations to Omar, XE1AO, for achieving Satellite VUCC
#182 and to George, WA5KHB, for confirming 225 Grids for his
VUCC! Both are recognized in the October, 2009, issue of QST
on page 94.
Also Jerry, VE6AB, is shown with his "CJU" antenna on page 76.
Plans for this simple antenna were in February QST. This
antenna is also used by Rob, KD4ZGW/M, our over-the-road truck
driver, who has handed out many rare grids during his travels across
the United States.
If you are just getting into satellites and are not hearing the
birds very well, the CJU antenna may be just the ticket to making
your first contact.
