You know you’ve been doing a lot of satellite operating, when….

I caught a nice little Es opening on 50MHz this evening. Nothing huge, but some HAs coming in on CW with a few other countries audible from time to time.

I realised I had been working a lot of satellite QSOs recently, when I was reaching for the VFO during the QSOs, expecting to have to tweak it for doppler!

Talking of satellite QSOs today, I was pleased to work RA3MAU over in `KO97 on VO-52 this afternoon. A gotaway on FO-29 was UN7CY. Great to hear him on CW – easy copy on the vertical, but I couldn’t find myself to call him! Other nice QSOs today with PA3ARK and EI9EW on VO-52.
