Hi folks,

I ALMOST had an entire pass talking to myself, but Dale, KL7XJ in BP40, saved me at the last minute.  4 degrees elevation, off to the north west, 10 watts at the shack-end of a long piece of coax and a 18 turn helix was just enough to make it into the bird.  Thanks, Dale!  Good signals throughout the pass on both U and S downlinks.
