Thanks for everyone's patience today. I was able to log about 20 contacts on
AO-27 and SO-50. Not bad for a first day out. I used the antennas as mounted
on the tower today. Tomorrow I will be on again and will play with the arrow
some more. 

73 all,

Subject: [amsat-bb] Operation from FM27 tomorrow

Hello all,
I'm new to satellite and I'm going to try my first QSOs on AO-27 during it's
daylight passes. Last weekend I listened to AO-27 on my tower mounted 432
beam but for this I'll be setting up an arrow antenna on a tripod and an
ft-736r. I've had the arrow for years but never got around to actually using
it for satellite.

Hope to see you on AO-27 tomorrow and possibly Sunday as well if I'm

Oh, and if anyone wants to sell a g-550 or similar elevation rotator let me
know. I'm interested.
