Richard Garriott report: the first 3 days

Hi all,

Below is my log so far of ISS contacts and SSTV pics from Oct 14 - Oct 
16... received from my home in Hanna, Indiana (near Chicago).  I have 
been using a computer VOX recorder since the beginning of W5KWQ's 
mission and have audio files for all the activity in my log.  If you 
made a voice contact and would like a copy of the audio that I received, 
please email me off the reflector at w4sv at arrl dot net

Hope everyone is enjoying this special mission as much as I am 
(especially since I got a voice QSO at 1652Z today!).  I also copied 
Richard's dad, Owen W5LFL, back in 1983, although I did not make a 
contact back then.  You can hear an SWL copy of W5LFL (and the 2-way 
QSO's that I have made) on my website at 
http://www.mistymountains.us/w4sv/space.html .  My QSO from today is not 
yet on the web, but I'll get it on there soon.

73 and Good Luck to all,
Stan W4SV
