I thought I'd check for activity on a late evening FO-29 pass tonight  as I 
hadn't listened for quite sometime.  I heard two 9 land stations  who had 
the pass entirely to themselves.  They were obviously good friends  as one of 
them indicated his spam filter had probably eaten the other station's  
email who had sent pictures.  They agreed to go to the Land Line after the  pass 
indicating they probably lived fairly close to each other.  I did  wonder 
though where everyone else was on tonight's pass.  I  probably should have 
tuned around more and may have missed some other  QSO's.  
Anyway, it was great hearing CW being utilized.  The doppler however  kept 
me quite busy at that frequency as I'm not using software.  Just  two ears 
and a pencil.
I've got to cobble something together and get on the air  soon.  Especially 
since I know there are some good CW ops such as  the two fine gentlemen I 
heard tonight.
