Hi All,

Chris VK6FCBG and myself did complete a one way double hop contact 
yesterday, 0945z 14 Mar 2015.  AO-07 and FO-29 were visible at the same 
time in Perth Western Australia for about 10 minutes.
I transmitted CW on 432.150MHz to AO-07 and Chris heard me on FO-29's 
downlink of 435.850.  Satellite to satellite link was on 145.950MHz.
Next is to complete a two-way voice contact.
