I finally got a Satellite QSO

Satellite Operations

Amateur Radio milestone this morning: my first satellite QSO! Bounced a signal off of AO-27 to grid EM55 (Tennessee, thanks WA4HFN) on a 5 watt handheld transmitter hitting an orbitting repeater the size of a shoebox at 1,700 miles out, in motion, with a 9 minute window.
