Snow, Slingshots and Satellites...

Had another night out trying to get satellites - no luck; but, I did get some good contacts into Italy and Croatia from the camp.

Had a satellite sked with a fellow in Illinois the other day and I could hear him and he could hear me via the satellite but, alas, we did not get the chance to confirm that on the air using the satellite - it was only via internet later than he said he could hear me. So, it looks like I am getting closer to making a full-blown satellite contact one of these days - at least I know that my homemade satellite antenna is capable of sending a signal via one.

Made a little video for those who can't spend a night in the winter woods:
