That was LU5BOJ/O from FG75 whom I worked at 01:52 UTC. We worked briefly as he was about to lose the bird. Not sure why he used the portable designation. It was O for Oscar as per his phonetics, and not a zero. Perhaps it's required in his country while working through a satellite? It's interesting that his first name is Oscar.
That's the first station I have heard from Argentina on any of the birds.
