I'm Bob, WB4SON, and I was the control operator at N1ASA today. It was fun
having a keyboard QSO with you (and K8OE as well) today.
As Steve, AI9IN, guessed, we were testing our gear (computers, radios,
antenna system) today. Despite some crummy wet/cold weather, things went
quite well. We certainly hope to have our luck hold tomorrow during the
16:43-16:53 UTC window when our students (All Saints Academy, Middletown
RI) ask Astronaut Jeff Williams their questions.
Thanks for everyone who put up with my horrible typing!
73, Bob, WB4SON aka N1ASA
