Hi Ed....

Just speaking for some of us Luddites, the thrill and challenge of a "pure" 
QSO, maybe with just CW, is part of the experience. I suppose I could get my 
computer to run consecutive QSOs, doppler tune, voice track, log, post my log in 
LOTW etc, but that is not what I enjoy.

My opinion is that "I did it myself" applies to computer "programming," and 
to satellite operation seperately.

I will reward you on your accomplishments, but reserve the right to set my 
own goals.

That said...anyone want to try AM through AO-7?  hihi
