AO-51 mode S



Hi to the BB...

Had lots of fun for the first time working AO-51 on mode S tonight at 02:54 
UTC pass.

Many thanks for the following contacts.

N5UXT
K4OZS
KC8ZFN
KK0SD

Also heard N4AC throughout the pass calling CQ. Called him several times but 
couldn't hear him back.

Signals sounded great with the following setup.

Uplink:
Icom IC-W32A at 5 watts, Arrow 2m antenna.

Downlink:
Homebrew 4 turns helical antenna, AIDC 3731 downconverter, Homebrew power 
inserter, Icom IC-W32A.

Hope to work again this fun mode on AO-51 at field day.

73,

Aruni Perera, VE4WMK
