Re: Sunsat Oscar-35 meets its destiny



Hi Johann...

I made my first satellite contacts ever using SO-35.  The local technical
gurus, who aren't impressed by much, sat up and took notice when I made
satellite contacts with an HT and 19 in. flexible whip.  Personally, I was
even more impressed when I could make SO-35 contacts with my desktop radio
and indoor antenna inside a steel frame "fireproof" apartment building.  I
can barely hear AO-27 from inside my building, and can't hear UO-14 at all
from inside.

I'm looking forward to your next "bird."

Congrat's and thanks!

73,
Frank
