Thanks for the info.  I have been trying unsuccessfully to  access the 
satellite  on the last 2 passes. 
The times differed a little from the email and I went by the tracking 
program.  SatPC32 was the one I was using.
I heard nothing.  I was hoping to at least hear my own down link 
signal.  I had good foot print
for Alaska and Western Canada as per the email that said it would be open. 
I am looking forward to work this satellite. Congrats to the folks 
AMSAT-SA and students that put this
this bird up.

I am looking forward to work this new satellite.  Congrat
