[amsat-bb] FO-29 users where are you?

It seems that most of the time when there is a pass in my area from  
FO-29, there are no users on the bird.  FO-29 is an excellent & loud  
satellite, and it requires very little output power.

I just spent 10 minutes or so calling cq, and listening up and down  
the passband, and there is no one around.  It gets boring listening to  
myself on the downlink!  This is generally the case, no matter the  
time of day or night.

Please, those of you who have the equipment - FO-29 is alive and well,  
let's use it!
