Yesterday evening 240110 at 2327z Piraja PS8RF at GI84ow and me EA4CYQ at IM78bw made a contact in SSB mode through HO68. I think it is the first SouthAmerica - Europe Contact of 7.477 Km.
After that I worked Canada VE2DWE and several USA stations KB1RVT, K3SZH and KC9ELU 6.666 Km. far away.
This sat works flawlesly, congratulations to HOPE-1 team.
