"Back in the day" (late 70's / early 80's) W1JR and I were both active
on AO-7 Mode B from FN42hn. I believe he had two one-way QSOs with
KH6 but never completed a QSO. Once he was heard, once he heard the
other station. In those days, you had plastic cut-outs which you
overlapped on a piece of paper to see when the windows would
intersect. I think the two were tangential, so there was only a very
tiny window during which a QSO was possible.
