Hi Alan and the list,

I think I can confirm your idea about ascending node passes.
Yesterday evening, I heard for my first ascending pass starting at about 
19.50 UTC and the signal was very good (about S5 sometimes) with 
circular polarization changes, so I was able to decode some TLM frames 
for the first time....

Long life to Delfi-C3!
