Good evening,

By now I hope every AMSAT-NA member has had a chance to read the first
version of my Orbital Debrief column in the January/February AMSAT
Journal. I would appreciate any feedback on this first edition! If you
are not an AMSAT-NA member, you are missing out. Please join AMSAT-NA

As designed, the column relies on input from satellite operators. If
you go on a grid expedition, work a new DX station, have a good story
about satellite operating, or receive a unique QSL card, please submit
any notes and photos for publication to n8hm at arrl.net.

Also, I would like to get some data from as many operators as well. I
would like to put together a picture of what is possible on the LEO
satellites. I have not decided exactly how I will present this data,
but I would like to receive a list of the following data (from LEO
satellites only) from as many operators as possible:

1. Grids worked / grids confirmed
2. Grid fields worked / grid fields confirmed
3. U. S. states worked / U. S. states confirmed
4. Canadian call areas worked / Canadian call areas confirmed
5. DXCCs worked / DXCCs confirmed
6. CQ zones worked / CQ zones confirmed
7. Continents worked / continents confirmed

The "Upcoming Satellite Operations" page on the AMSAT website
(http://www.amsat.org/?page_id=3921) is designed as a real-time
companion to the column, and as mentioned in a previous post, I
encourage all satellite operators to bookmark it and check it
regularly. Thank you in advance for your suggestions and submissions
and I hope you enjoy the column!
