Saturday April 4, aprox 15:00 UTC, Charles on was 145.800 during an east coast USA pass.  It sound liked he was talking to Goddard in Maryland, no call signs were hear during the 5+ minute conversation.  A portion of the conversation was dedicated to battery status of the VC-H1 communicator.  I was mobile at the time and did not record the conversation.  It seems Charles was concerned about the battery consumption of the VC-H1 and did NOT want to run the VCH1 in automatic mode.  I also got the impression that there was not a large supply of used batteries for the VH-H1 (requires 4 AA batteries).
Did anyone get a recording of that pass and have a better view of the conversation.

Thanks Miles WF1F
