At this time, I would not rely upon the web site for scheduling as it has
been in out of date for about a week. When it is updated it is often the
next day already.
Just monitor every pass you can. On spec I was monitoring on Nov 1, 2009 on
the 16:45 UTC pass over NA ( web site still had an October schedule ) and
managed a contact with Mark WA8SME ( EN19 Winnipeg to DM08 Lake Tahoe ). We
were the only 2 ops on that whole pass until my LOS.
I can confirm the excellent quality and strong audio but with occasional
cutting out. I had not learned about using FM-N and lower power and mic
gain to prevent that from happening. I have yet to try that throttled-back
