Hi all,
Pleased to report that UO-11 was active and quite strong on the North/South 
 pass from my QTH in Wales 
here in the UK.   Approx.  0958 hrs GMT.   31st  December 2010.
I have not monitored A0 -7 as yet today ( it was active yesterday)  but is 
nice to see these old birds seeing out yet another year along with  those 
much younger in this new world of technology advances..
Just a point to the many enquiries about working satellites  -You  do not 
need high power or high gain antennas to enjoy the hobby - I have used  both 
my Arrow and Elk antennas for many contacts and still get
good reports.
Wishing you all a "HAPPY NEW YEAR and GOOD LUCK" for 2011.
A big thanks to all that support their time and effort as well as donations 
 to make the hobby worhwhile.
