    Saw your tweet about working satellites on your recent European trip. Did you work SO-50 at night over there? ;)

    Anyone have a look at the SO-50 projected battery life presentation lately?

    No, haven't seen one. Did you ever get Dr. al-Saud's number?

    ;)

    I don't own a Rolodex(tm).

    I don't store my contacts in the cloud, either. <smirk>

    No, there wasn't much "night" at 54 degrees north anyway, especially from a satellite's point of view. I worked a few passes of SO-50 in the early morning hours though. Eastern passes toward Russia were very quiet at 5-6 am.

    Still working! Seeing plenty of reports of QSOs and have made a few myself.

    35E6B16C-8435-464D-ACA5-85C8E10821B3.jpeg The batteries are still in good shape from what I can tell. My 11 year old daughter W4AQT, standing on a park bench for more elevation, just made two contacts at 0238z on 9-23-2018.

    AMSAT status page still showing SO-50 holding its own, day and night.

    Wow, no offense guys but I ask this question 5 years ago and I'm not really sure why people are still bumping it.
