WOW!!! I did it!!!

I am more excited than I was the day I got my driver license! I just made a
contact on AO-27 via my Yaesu FT50 with Comet SMA3 antenna. Unfortunately, I
was not able to copy the N5 station which copied me, to get his complete
call, but none the less it was quite thrilling to hear the stations. The
SMA3 antenna is 'so so', I do plan on getting a whip with a bit more gain
and then maybe I can graduate to an Arrow <grin>. Anyways, to all the folks
on the list that have been answering my stupid questions about AO-27,
