Congratulations! I still remember my first Sat QSO as if it were yesterday.
The thrill of hearing my downlink and then the response from W6AJP was one
of the highlights of my time as a ham. 

Now be sure to apply for the Satellite Communicators Award. Details are the
AMSAT web page.

73 & see you on the birds!

I want to give a huge "Thank You" to all of the guys at the Dayton
Hamvention for the information they shared at the AMSAT booth and the
demonstrations. After a few unsuccessful tries I made my first QSO on SO-50
about 10 minutes ago. I only made one contact tonight, that being KC9TTR in
Indiana, but I know that the first one is the hardest.

I am thrilled right now, and I know that learning what I learned in Dayton
put me ahead many, many hours.

Thanks again,
