Just for fun I attempted to hear SO-67 on the 1416UTC pass this morning.  It was orbit 790 with a max elevation of 79 degrees.  I was using my TH-F6A with stock rubber duck antenna.  A few minutes into the pass out of the noise came the signal.  For this minimal setup signals were rather strong.  I knew I would have no problem hearing the bird with my crossed yagis on the tower but I wanted to see how I could push the minimalist envelope with just a stock ht.  I was pleasantly surprised with the strong signals.  Congratulations to amsat sa etc on a fine new addition to the amateur satellite service.
