Re: [eu-amsat] FO-29 back again ?!?



... yes Thomas, "damned" incidence !

IO-26 has same frequency & just the same footprint
today with FO-29!!

I apologize but as I said on my message:

"Don't *shoot* me if I'm wrong."

DUM SPIRO SPERO (=While I breath, I hope) my
friends...

73, Mak SV1BSX

ps: tks also to Masa  JN1GKZ... he noticed just
the same about IO-26.
