Re: Vicksburg Contact...



Hi Dino:

Yes, those are my antennas and they are both M2.

I had some KLMs but sold them 2 years ago when we sold our home and built a
new house.  When we finished our new home and it was time to buy some new
antennas, KLM was out of business and M2 was my best choice.

Primary base unit for contact is Kenwood with 150W amp.

My Yaesu 736 is backup.

While the contact was set for 0918Z this morning, we did not contact with
the ISS crew.  We assume is was a crew schedule problem and we look forward
to another opportunity. Student morale and supporting folks remains high as
they learn much about ISS and Amateur Radio.

73,

Russ Tillman, K5NRK
Vicksburg, MS
