Richard Garriott again was operating like a seasoned DXer this morning during a "FANTASTIC AUDIO/VISUAL PASS" over Greenville, SC!!!
Heavens-above ISS visual pass, 21 Oct, Mag -0.5, Greenville, SC 7:03 EDT Start 10 degree SSW 7:06 EDT Max 33 degree SE 7:08 EDT Ends 10 degree ENE
It was a clear morning, so I got to work early at 7am to see a 34 degree visual pass. I turned on the radio and Richard was on the air!
While watching for the pass I heard Richard faintly clear with another station.
I called: Kilo Delta Four Sierra Foxtrot Foxtrot/Mobile from my work van.
He returned my call Kilo Delta Four Sierra Sierra Foxtrot/Mobile.
I quickly returned again correcting him: Sugar Fox Fox, Sugar Fox Fox, your 5 by 9, QSL
He returned with my call corrected and said QSL!
I heard Richard also speak to:
K4ADR KI8L AA4KN N8MH KB5YZG M3CXP - Tom WB2OQQ - Pete W2DPT N3JQ - (youngster) N1SDH VE2JBL N3GL
Richard, I know your Father will be very proud your "Extreme Enthusiasm" of operating Ham Radio from Space!
A BIG THANKS from all of us!
