Congratulations Steve, W5IEM, on your first satellite contact.  I will 
never forget my first one.  It was more exciting than my first novice 
contact when I was 11 years old!  You will soon find out just how 
addictive satellites can be.  Welcome aboard!

I would like to pass on my "Thank You" to everyone at the AMSAT booth.  
I worked in the booth on both Friday and Saturday.  It was so nice to 
put a face on the many I have worked through a satellite.  This was my 
first time to work in an AMSAT booth.  Everyone made me feel so much at 
home.  The hospitality that I was shown was very much appreciated.  The 
time just went way too fast.  The banquet was terrific too.  Learning 
about the Fun Cube Dongle was a special treat. A big Thank You to 
everyone involved for making my first trip to Dayton a special one.  A 
Thank You also goes out to Martha for making my reservations at a really 
nice hotel.

Like satellites, I believe Dayton may be habit forming!  I have been an 
active Ham for 50+ years and I am still learning new tricks and 
developing "good" habits.
