Congratulations! It is indeed amazing. A suggestion is to use a cheap
digital recorder for recording your contacts. You can replay the QSOs
later, verify calls, and log them. I use a "Y cord" to the earpiece and
recorder, but some recorders will pass the audio through.

Subject: [amsat-bb] My first portable sat qso made today.
Today I made my first portable satellite qso in my backyard via SO-50.
I bought an arrow antenna from www.vpa-systems.pl and connected a
portable to it.
I didn't know it was that easy! I worked EA7HZZ and a German station
(forgot his call because I was to excited)
What a nice hobby we have!
