Ryan --
I had the same concerns, until I re-read Alan's letter, which said
"XW-1 FM and store-forwared transponder will be turn on again between
1205UTC and 1352UTC on Dec. 18." The recent pass over NA was about
14:20UTC. Rats!

Glad to hear you're trying an omni antenna. Was this in a rural or
urban area? Did you use a preamp with this?
