Successful Pass for the AO-51@ 1645 IST (1115 UTC). It was a fairly low angle pass @ 24deg Elevation on the Eastern Hemisphere going from South to North.
At around 1648 IST (1118 UTC), I started hearing E21EJC (OM Kob) along with other Thai stations talking in their local dialect. Then could hear Guru - VU2GUR calling Kob. Kob came back with a report. I immediatley called Kob who gave me a 59 report. Then another Thai station, HS1IWX (OM Amnat ?) was contacted with a 59 both ways QSO - a new station. As the satellite went Nortwards and the signals faded for us - I could feebly hear HS1EAX.
VU2GZ OM Hari also reported having heard Guru and me during the usual "after-pass" QSO on the local repeater.
The set up for this QSO was
TX : Kenwood -TH 255A - 5 W O/P - VHF
RX: Wouxun - KG-UVD1P - UHF
VHF - Moxon Rectangle
UHF - Centre Fed - Collinear
Now the Moxon has been tested for both Tx and RX - Fully Certified for efficiency even for low angle passes !!!!!!!!!
The other antenna that I use is the bozooka - currently horizontally polarized. It is mounted on the same boom as the Moxon antenna and fed by a seperate Cable.
