For the ones who aren't familiar with french language, the msg is about
a
request (from F5OZK) for a qso beetween Jean-Pierre and his parents.
It was skeded for today (5th April, at 1436z) on 145.940MHz.

And in did it was done! From LOS till AOS the french cosmonaut spoke
with his family. First he spoke with is father and then with his mother.
He was very happy and assured (several times) he was in good shape
(doing
daily body exercise) and also with high moral. He also relaxed his
mother 
saying he was eating well (aren't mother's all the same, everywere??? :)
He also spoke about life aboard and many other things.
Unfortunatly I didn't tape the conversation (because I was portable at
office :) 
and my "tracking station" (HT and rubber antenna) couldn't get it all. 
Even so the signal went up to a solid 59! Amazing!!!

Congratulations to all, particulary to Frederick, F5OZK. WELL DONE!!!

Best 73 
F.Costa, CT1EAT
