Hi Steve, a workaround for this in lieu of pencil and paper is a small
cassette recorder (commonly used for dictation). They are all over ebay or
other sites cheap. You can just stick it in your shirt pocket and it will
record your voice speaking to the station you are working (incl the call
sign). You could also get fancy and plug it into your receive Baofeng and
record that way

Good luck and 73, Ted

Well, I got my first satellite contact this evening on a pass of SO-50.
Thank you for the help from the forum for getting me started. I used two
Baofeng UV82 handhelds and an Arrow antenna.
Problem is that I wasn't necessarily expecting it to work, so I didn't plan
on a way to record the QSO. 
So, if you happened to be the person who called back to AI9IN in EM79
between 2331 and 2345 UTC this evening, thank you, thank you, thank you!
If you send me your info, I'd be happy to send you a QSL and put you in
If getting this confirmed by email is "illegal", I understand and won't
officially count it, but I'd still like to know who you are so I can send
you another set of "Thank yous".
