Thanks for putting another Washington-area NPOTA site on the satellites
this morning/afternoon! You were pretty close to that spot on the FO-29
transponder, and easy to hear. I heard you work KO4MA just before I made
my call. After you worked me, I counted 13 more QSOs before LOS
for me - and probably you, too. Did you work others before I heard you
work Drew? This was another NPOTA activation done on one satellite
pass, and you weren't on an FM pass. Great job!
