> 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 
> LoTW.
> 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".
