Made my first APRS and voice contact today - Woohoo!

Spent the weekend getting set up to do packet and this morning I made my first packet contact. Felt great!! Wrote about it on my blog at

A few mins ago (21:07z) I made a voice contact with NA1SS after wondering why I wasn't hearing any packets on a great pass directly over me. I switched to the voice frequencies and there it was. What a great feeling to make that first contact.

If anyone recorded the pass over the northeastern US when I made a contact at 21:07 I would love to have the snippet.

What a thrill and relatively so easy!
