Thank you, Alan! It has been a very fun week since. I've made quite a  
few contacts, and I really like this aspect of amateur radio.

I will pass along the certificate information to Marnie. I have heard  
from mutual ham friends that the experience vitalized her, and she's  
passed her General exam and is having some QSL cards printed up. She's  
excited to get her first QSL in return from that satellite contact.
