Re: field day 6 contacts I hope

Well, I sure would like to be able to make 20+ Field Day satellite QSO's 
like we used to when AO-13 was still up there............  gotta love those 
HEO birds!  Anyway, if I am going to go thru all the effort of dragging my 
gear to Field Day, I sure expect to make more than just 6 contacts!!!  I'll 
probably limit myself to one Q per FM bird (depends on how jammed the 
overnight passes are), but the SSB birds are fair game.
