   Hello Takushi, hello my friends here,

   As we were listening the very first passes over western Europe, I and a 
lot of us here I guess are monitoring the last ones. Unfortunately the 
last ones... I already listen and record all the passes over head since 
Sunday 23rd.
   The signal of the 437.250 MHz beacon is very strong, and the Doppler 
shift really terrible at mid pass. And of course the time between 
acquisition and lost very short, about four minutes.

   Congratulations to you, Takushi, and to all the staff involved in the 
Niwaka/FITSAT-1 project at the Fukuoka Instutute of Technology, for the 
success of this project. Thank you so much for the continuous information 
we gave us during this experiment.
