    Any activity from regions in footprint of LEO satellites near VU land? There were a couple of high schoolers in our LEO Satellite contact group who are trying to be active on satellites. 73 de VU2JO.

    I have gotten a reply, it's just that I am allowed to participate, but maybe next year since it costs quite a bit of cash a long with having to give about a month's notice to ACMA (Australia's version of FCC) and won't be able to do it this year :)
