I am gathering up my clothes for my trip to Dayton. I hope to see and
meet as many satellite folks as possible! I have my name in the hat to
work at the AMSAT booth. I worked last year and had the best time!
I keep seeing many emails about what satellites are operating. It seems
many think that none are working. Well I can tell you that I am having
a blast working FO-29, SO-50 , VO-52, and grandpa AO-7. I do admit that
AO-7 has a bit of a stutter step when too many get on or someone cranks
their power up too much. Take a look at the link Bob, W7LRD, posted
regarding active satellites: http://aar29.free.fr/sat/indexlogin.php
Each contact is so exciting. OMG, I worked Brazil last night too!
FO-29 sounded just like 20 meters last night! It is so nice to hear
those making their first contact and so nice to renew old friendships.
Hope to meet you or at least work you!
...still excited about amateur radio after being active for 50+ years!
