Uh, dude, you've caught it ... and it is quite contagious ... with few known cures:


I've tred everything to cure myself of this. Modern meds - legal and, er, otherwise. Pina Coladas. Using VistaPrint to make AMSAT banners and informational post cards. Staying up for 48 hours preparing for a party and trying to work ARISSat-1 ... NOTHING has cured me of this malady.

Every once in a while, my wife will hear me exclaim from the back yard, "I just talked to Vancouver!" I am sure she thinks I am nuts, and wonders why I just don't use the cell phone ...

>> ... recording the passes ...

What is your setup? A direct connection to your audio, or a smartphone voice recorder app, or ??? ?

 so I have an audio recording of my first AO-51 QSO.

>> ... A big thanks to K6LCS (Clint) and his web site ... for all the tips and inspiration to give satellites a try.

I am to old to get this affected ... thanks!

Clint, K6LCS
