At 0204 UTC on 23 January, KL7XJ and I had a quick contact on HO-68 in FM. At the time, the satellite was below 4.5 degrees and descending for me. I'm thrilled to put state No. 49 in the log with my handheld station - a Yaesu VX-7R and Elk dual-band log periodic. I never expected to get more than the lower 48 in my satellite log with the HT, so this is a very pleasant surprise. My thanks to AMSAT-China for HO-68, and to Dale for being there when it counted.
73 to all,
Tim - N3TL
