  No it wasn't an April fools day prank, I was on AO91 for a few
minutes (before the footprint was too far north) and worked a few
stations.  It was to be a demonstration of amateur satellite
communications for a Canadian Broadcasting Corp locally produced
program.  Thanks to all who were on.

  As the antenna, radio, and log keeping were too much of a challenge
outdoors (temperature was about -18C or 0F with a windchill around
-27C) I used an old recorder for logging.  For the most part it worked
well, there is at least one call sign I'm having trouble picking out.
I've had some help improving the quality, but if someone wanted a copy
of the MP3 file to try their luck at getting more out of it I'll send
them the file.  Its just over 5 min long.
