Hi John!

Thanks for the quick QSO during that ISS pass! Using my TH-D74A
and Elk log periodic in the back yard, along with some prepared
messages instead of fumbling on the keypad to type out my grid
locator and "tnx" or "73" to end QSOs, I'm happy we could make
that exchange.

Before you showed up, I had made QSOs with KK6OTJ in southern
California and KC7MG south of the Phoenix area. I saw one other
station before my LOS, KB6LTY-2 who was also in southern California.

Working you wasn't my longest-distance QSO on the 70cm ISS packet
digipeater, but it was pretty good at just over 1900km. Thanks
again for answering me.
