Thanks I did hear your call in there as well -
The audio was on the pass was pretty weak even thou it was a fairly high pass. I guess that is were a preamp would come in handy

Thanks again,

Hi LeRoy and all,

You are correct on Jim, ND9M in FM29 on that pass.  I worked
him from my mobile at 1509utc (1109 eastern) on that pass of S0-50.
If I had been at home, I would have had a recording to give you also.
Welcome to the birds!  Hang in there, it only gets better.
