“Andrew Knafel, KN8FEL saw my videos and through our correspondence I helped him learn how to operate satellites. He and his family live in Ohio but regularly vacation at Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. He has a long time friend who lives near Raleigh, which is on the way to Myrtle Beach, who he usually stops to see.
Since he was in town we met up for an evening to play radio. We worked four passes on four different satellites. The highlight was making contact through a satellite while standing mere feet away from each other. We actually did this twice on two different satellites. 🙂 Sponsored by Nordic PC, M2 Antenna Systems, Arrow Antenna, and Dog Park Software”
