It's the combination of the PL and lots of people trying to use the bird.
We've seen this before, with AO-51, UO-14, SO-50, etc. When the newness
wears off it will work much better for everyone. I would like to see what
happens if they turn off the PL though....

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.
