Hello Les!

I worked Norm right before you. I heard and recorded your QSO. Despite your
modulation was a little distorted, you completed the contact successfully.

I will send the recording in a separate email.

Thanks very much to Norm for all the new grids!!!

Asunto: [amsat-bb] Norm on FO-29 and VUCC/DXCC Credit

I should have spelled out in my earlier e-mail that I'm not even going 
to think about QSLing Norm,  N3YKF/OA4 in FM18 for VUCC or DXCC credit 
unless I'm fortunate
enough to work him again before he leaves Peru.

I prefer to earn 'em fair and square or not at all. Just thought it was 
a funny story that other operators might enjoy. And I wanted to note his 
callsign in case I heard him on the
birds again.

It seems a lot of operators use a digital audio recorder for logging, 
especially those who operate handheld. Lesson learned, check all 
connections before the pass begins! Ha, Ha.
Thanks for helping to solve the mystery and sorry for any confusion.
