Hi Eric:
I made four contacts on this pass, so it was working. There was lots of
fading and I find that aiming the Arrow on the real high passes is more
difficult than with the lower ones. Sometimes the bird is not where you
expect it and SO-50's trajectory is much more variable than Echo's.

Opps, forgot the time in my original message...

Just took the arrow and the HT out to the driveway to work SO-50 and
didn't hear anything.  I attempted to activate the bird numerous times
but still nothing.  Did anyone hear/work the bird on this pass?
