Re: AO-7B



Hi Joe, K3SZH

As an old timer beginning with OSCAR-6  I completely agree with you.

I am mostly active via FO-29 and the day october 14 at 21:05 UTC I have
heard you very strong calling CQ  but only for about 15 seconds because
our window  between your FN10OG and my JN70ES is very short.

I would like to try to contact you when FO-29 will be available for us
as soon the rotation of the line of apside will bring the apogee for maximum
footprint between us.

I have made several QSO via FO-29 with Fred W1FC in FN41 and more
recently I get regular QSOs with TR8CA in Libreville Gabon JJ40QL

My previous message to you at k3szh@netzero.net in order to get a skedule
bounced back to me so that if you are interested in a possible QSO via FO-29
please let me know

Best 73" de
