Running digitalker from July 20 till today Aug 31 was
a promise with children and young students. This period
is the Summer holidays for public elementary and junior high
schools here in Japan and the digitalker provided material
for their Summer holiday research projects. 

This is not just for children but ham operators in all ages
who have never thought it is possible to listen signal from
satellites with their handheld. So the decision of JAS2 control
station is based on the hope for bringing them up to the next
level.
