On for 20:45 and 22:25 utc passes.  Early one was max elevation of 15 
next one nearly overhead pass.  Receiving with 52 turn helix with cup 
No signal background noise is S1. Max sig on 15 degree el pass was S6 and on
near overhead was S9 + 10db.  Had 2 QSOs on low pass and 4 on high pass.
S band transmitter sounds good.
2 meter uplink power is as low as it will go on FT-847 (2 watts) into 2 X 6 
linear Quagis.

Tnx Drew.
