2 contacts (Patrick and Kerry, long time no worked !) from CN82 from a very rusty sat operator. But, this will be a good bird for new operators to get some contacts. (FYI, just used HRD sat program v6x to tune and it worked pretty good- pass directly overhead.)

About a dozen stations were heard making contacts on LilacSat-2 at 00:11Z, orbit # 135. From my QTH in Texas, EM21, I was hearing stations as far north as EN37. This orbit put LilacSat-2 almost directly up the center of the USA. I was able to make several contacts using 5 watts and an Elk antenna.
