Thanks for being up at that hour to work across
the pond on FO-29! It would be nice to see a bunch
of European calls in the W7O satellite log.

I'll be on AO-73 this (Friday) evening as W7O, for
the pass around 0458 UTC.  On Saturday morning, I'll
work 3 passes before I get tied up with work-related

SO-50 at 1422 UTC
FO-29 at 1430 UTC
AO-73 at 1651 UTC

>From what I've heard, John K8YSE/7 made the first
W7O satellite QSO this evening on SO-50 at 0011 UTC.
Christy KB6LTY was on the W7O mic from southern
California for that QSO.  I know others have been
working HF as W7O, and I'm gaining operators and
filling more slots in the W7O HF schedule.  Sounds
like there have been some interesting stories from
stations working W7O, including some who worked the
satellite in its first lifetime in the 1970s.

Thanks to everyone who has volunteered to work as
W7O, whether on the satellites or the HF bands.
The number of W7O lookups on QRZ was reset when I
put the current information on there, and several
hundred lookups have been recorded already.  There
is interest among the ham community in this old
satellite.  :-)
