Thank you Jim!

A few days ago I was able to complete a QSO with Yuri with AO-73 at just half a degree of elevation, out over the Atlantic. I'm upgrading my 2m antenna soon to circular to help alleviate some of the polarity fading, but it's hard to argue with results like that. I'm very much looking forward to using the new FunCube payloads as they become available.

73, Drew KO4MA
