That's an interesting obsevation Dan.
If we listen to the pass at 23.15 UTC, the pass is mid Atlantic with good  
communications between Western Europe and the East Coast of the USA.    
Italy / Eastern Europe is out of the footprint, so there should be fewer  
stations on the XW1 uplink.

Hello  satfolks;

When i listen to the recording of the activity (12:35z) over  Europe of 
HO68 I
hear my calling is shortly interupted just that long of a  packet. So I 
think the
input of the transmitter is muted every time a carry  is detected. If many 
try to
send packets to the sat normal voice  communication is impossible. 
So my conclussion is: packet and voice mode  at the same time is not a good 
Maybe that was the problem of the  firsth FM-activity over Europe.
Many where trying to work the sat in packet  and the input was most of the 
muted. Only big gunns could get thru the  packets.

Merry Christmas.
