You did a great job operating. I had the honor of listening to many of your low elevations QSOs with Europe and Brazil on FO-29, and hearing and working you on AO-7 Mode U/v was a thrill. For those that don't realize that you were using a single FT-817 on the transponders, the news that you were working South America, North America, and a good part of Europe half-duplex with 5 watts may be a substantial surprise.
The fact you uploaded to LOTW almost instantly was just icing on the cake.
Great work, and I look forward to hearing you from your next destination. Hope to see you soon, maybe at Ocala or Tampa hamfests in December?
73, Drew KO4MA
