Satellite’s anyone?  We always like to see Gen-X’ers get excited about Amateur Radio.  Check out the video from KC2UOO on his first satellite contact on A0-51.  Totally awesome, dude.

First time trying my hand at the birds! Was nervous.. sorry for going in over another qso in progress.. KB0RZD- call sign near begining W7JPI Leo, Thanks very much for the first contact! WA4…

Watch the video here – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aXCNqvim2MU
(We are pertty sure the red tie is required.  KU2UOO sets a new standard for Amateur Radio operating attire.  Good for Gen-X!)

Then watch Randy K7AGE pull it off – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1HfvmU_utI8&NR=1
