About 2 minutes after you, I also had a quick QSO!  Five watts
from my back yard, for my first Field Day QSO.  Other regulars
were getting through before the ISS footprint covered more of
the continental USA.  Then my phone started blowing up, with
tweets and SMS messages from those who heard NA1SS respond to
me.  My Field Day could be complete with this QSO, but I'm
going to work portable HF from the yard later, and some western
satellite passes tonight for my satellite QSO bonus.

Did anyone try 70cm for a QSO?  NA1SS was saying "2A DX", so a
second transmitter could have been on.
