  Hi Bob, W7LRD

  Yes ! I remember, we worked on AO40 I belive in Mode-U/S particularly when the satellite was very low over the horizon for both of us. I will check on my tape recorder and as soon i will find a QSO with you I will made for you a WAV file 

  I send this email to you as well via AMSAT-BB because your provider @comcast.net very often rejects all emails coming from my provider @tin.it and so probably it will be a problem to send you a WAV flle ! If you have another email address please let me know.

  Hi Joe,

  Beginning from OSCAR-6 up to AO40 I have all my QSO recorded on
  a professional tape recorder REVOX A77 using 1/4" tape winded in many
  and many big coils each 10.63 " in diameter and so I can enjoy to hear time
  to time the voice of my old satellite friends and as well the CW ROBOT
  of the RS satellites.Before to start any QSO I mention on tape the name of
  the satellite the orbit numbar and the date, just for record along with the
  log on paper.
