It won't be when it first "appears" at your horizon but it will go to the Digital Med then Analogue Med during the pass.  Orbitron should give you the total time you'll "see" the satellite.

You'll initially hear silence, then digital for 1 minute then you should hopefully hear voice.

Hope that helps!

If I read this right, the satellite will not be "on" during the pass over my

AO27 schedule UTC

Sat Nov 10 19:19:57 2007    Digital Med

Sat Nov 10 19:20:17 2007    Analogue Med

Sat Nov 10 19:27:17 2007    Digital Med

Sat Nov 10 19:28:17 2007    OFF

Sat Nov 10 21:00:46 2007    Digital Med

Sat Nov 10 21:01:06 2007    Analogue Med

Sat Nov 10 21:08:06 2007    Digital Med

Sat Nov 10 21:09:06 2007    OFF

The pass over my house is listed on Orbitron as happening at 20:59 UTC.

Does my figuring make sense?
