Hi Eric, ON4HF

Before to call F2IL an European alligator and give bad publicity on
AMSAT-BB I suggest you to use more fair play and send to him
an email and explain to him the problem occurred to day on SO-50

As far I know my friend Jean Marie is an expert satellite operator
and I have with him many correct QSO's on all the linear birds.

Here is the email address of Jean Marie F2IL
