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.
