Hi Europeans,
As Hans, ZS6AKV, said the plan for next week gives us the opportunity to use
it during the week.
As always it is just a plan. See it on:


This week I have listened to a lot of the passes over Europe and I have a
few comments:

Do NOT use the CTCSS tone. It is heard on the downlink.
It is much better to use normal FM deviation and adjust mike gain until you
sound good on the downlink. 

And please limit the number of QSOs per orbit. Give others a chance. Also
there is no need to contact the same station on each orbit.

Have fun.
