Congratulations Rolf for the first QSO with A71A..
You are a real satellite DXer for long time and you certainly deserve it !!
We are looking forward to hearing you from rare DX countries with your mobile satellite station..
I think you heard my whistelinng noise and you just hit us at the right time when A71A (Operator Sabaan A71BP) took the microphone..
6 Years ago I was first time in Qatar at the Ham Radio Festival and Qatar National Day.. Now we are here again and so happy that our dream comes true..
We had a great openening ceremony with the Prime Minister of Qatar watching the live video from HE Abdullah bin Hamad Al Attiyah, A71AU, on the big screen in the control room from Es'hailSat.
We could see that all the parties involved, including government and Es'hailSat were very delighted with this success.
Indeed we all can be very greatfull to Qatar and the QARS for giving us this fantastic opportunity and for supporting worlwide friendship, humanity and education through Qatar OSCAR 100.
