Re: JOTA 2002



Tim,
Thankyou very much for the information about the Dutch Scout contact.
It was a very good pass with a full ten minutes of QSO time, and very few
nulls.
Unfortunately our own JOTA station had closed down at lunch time,
but I made a tape recording of the transmissions from ISS on the pass from
12:32 to 12:42, at my own station, here, and we will be able play that to
the Scouts at the next opportunity.
Thanks once again
