    I was also active on the same early birds, Greg if you worked ZL2AZJ or
    ZL2HV chances are it was me at the respective club stations.  As the

    suitable forum for further discussion Also Amsat would would be a
    useful source of further information (the USA AMSAT
    site is under maintenance.)
