Hi Bob,

Missed you on the western pass just now.  I worked WC7V in DN45, and heard a very familiar sounding "Hola!", but didn't catch the call sign.  The rest of the pass was me calling CQ, all the way down to about 2 degrees above the north-western horizon.

Tracking the fast moving AO-51 with a three foot dish by manually is tricky, I have a LVB tracker on order.  Thankyou Drew, and the other control ops, this is neat stuff.
