This is for Wayne, W9AE

I apologize if I was a bit vague, but I was dancing around my living room
and quite excited.

I "worked" NO-44 by digipeating packet data to the satellite and got a
confirmation on the sat board that it heard me.  I can't seem to get a
solid ack back from it so I did not send a message to another user.
However,  I saw that somebody sent me a message but it didn't come
through...my radio never heard it.  I am only working 5 watts with an HT.

I hope this clears things up a bit.  I'm new at this myself so that was my
first NO-44 contact.  Still dancing around and have made two more contacts
since then.
