A few days before my satellite demo at the Raleigh Amateur Radio Society hamfest (RARSfest), I put the word out to satellite operators on mailing lists, Facebooks, Twitters, and even good old fashioned web forums, and boy did they come calling!
Without a doubt, I have never made 18 QSOs (contacts) on one satellite pass. What a great demo. Thanks to all the hams that contacted me: What a great demo. Thanks to all the hams that contacted me:
