Subject: [Work-Sat] First Satellite Contact


Hello Everyone,

Well I finally made my first satellite contact this evening on AO-51 using the FT-817ND and the Arrow II yagi.

I did find out however it definitely works best if one has the PL tone set for the uplink.....DUH!!

All I can say now is this satellite stuff is pretty doggone cool.
