Re: HAMSAT launch was 100% successfull



Hi William and AMSAT-India,
First of all thanks to ISRO and AMSAT-India for launching
a new HAMSAT :-)
Now all of us are looking forward to hearing HAMSAT and to
use it for many years.
And to William: Hope your transponder will prove the concept
of using mode-U/V linear for a LEO and thanks for all your 
hard work over the last years.
I am still sorry you did not come to Copenhagen. We might have had 
a nice time. Consider this an invitation.
For those of you who do not know the story I tried to get William
to study at our University in Copenhagen a few years ago. 
May be it was better to use the time to make transponders.
