Hi Ed,

Were you in SSB or FM mode?  I was on the earlier pass (20:00z) today, and at least for that pass the bird was in SSB/CW mode.  Had my first contact on HO-68, a nice chat with Kerry, WC7V, in Montana.  It was quite loud, like S5 when most birds barely move the needle.  Really easy to copy.  Great job, CAMSAT!
