Just a little report that satellite DX is alive and kicking. Today I worked
EA5TT in IM99 on AO-7 Mode B SSB on our second attempt, a distance of
7437km. We were both at about 2 degrees elevation for the QSO. Thank you


Soon after, I was on FO-29 and worked EA1JM, G3VKV, and F6CTW on a 3 or 4
degree max pass. At the beginning of the pass I did hear a FM5 cq'ing, but
didn't get an answer and he disappeared after my first call. I assume this
was FM5EP that Clayton on a subsequent pass.


I'm open for any schedules with stations that need Florida or EL88, or who
are in a grid that I need, and there are several in Europe and South America
still! My QRZ entry has a map of confirmed grids, but there is a higher
resolution one in my Dropbox, visible at
