[amsat-bb] XW sats

When I was setting up my sat station in Florida I could work the X birds
with just a dualband vertical. I could work at least one station a pass in
that configuration. I could hear my D/L just enough to make some contacts.
Give it a try...

These U/V XW-2 birds are so loud almost anyone with the most modest station
can work them.

I have 296 contacts logged between XW-2A,B,C,D,E, & F.  The majority on are
A & C.
