I really like the satellite antenna setup. Very simple, but clean and
effective. I was going to do mine on a tower, but I might copy your
idea, since height isnt really needed. - KC8GRQ USA

Hi Andre,
Sorry about the poor copy on SO-50, 5-Jan-2006, 18:49 GMT.

I was sitting in my car when I heard you call..

The satellite was quite weak but I could hear you..

Maybe we will get a chance to speak again.

You have a very interesting web page..

Hello Andre. I just contacted you on AO Echo. Nice Webpage! You
are my first Netherlands QSO via satellite. I am originally from
Albany, NY which used to be known as New Amsterdam, one of the
earliest Dutch Colonies in the USA. It was founded in 1608 by Henry
Hudson. Albany still celebrates its Dutch Heritage with pride.

Thank you very much for the contact on AO-51 tonight. It looked like
my AOS was close to your LOS, but glad to be able to make contact here

Hope to work you again, soon! 73 from Newfoundland,
