Hi Dom!

Of course it is impossible to compare HEO with LEO, but I am still very 
impressed with the signals I heard via AO-73 tonight. I could not have 
achieved DXCC from Houston without HEO HAMSATS. At least for now I am happy 
that we have a new linear transponder in the sky that work so well!

On the next pass I worked AA5PK, K4FEG, W5AOO and WB0KFC.

It will be a long time before our next HAMSAT QSO Dom...

Until then, we will do what we can with what we have!
