The satellite presentation and live demo at the Richardson Wireless Klub 
very well.  Had at least forty attendees and about half of them stayed 
for the
live demo. Thanks to Fernando NP4JV, Glenn AA5PK, Jim K5ND, Bert XE1HG,
Christy KB6LTY, Edward KK9EJ, Matthew KG5HVL, John K8YSE, Jerry N0JY, and
Virgilio HP2VX for the QSOs during the pass.  This was a personal best 
for the
number of QSOs I've done on a single pass (ten!).  I also got a new grid 
in the deal (EN60).  I had a blast!
