I copied two stations on SSB at 435.733 for the second half of pass 
#732, 10:30-10:50 utc.  They did not pass call signs while I listened.

I hadn't reprogrammed he FT-847 for SSB so my uplink was on the wrong 
freq. but Rx signals were "arm-chair" until elevation < 10 deg.  Not 
too bad for omni-directional antennas.  I looked up the freq. info 
after the pass and discovered why I didn't hear my self (uplinking at 
145.825).  I now have a separate satellite memory setup for the SSB 
freq. of HO68 (435.740Rx/145.950Tx).

The next pass is for 0020-0105, Feb. 9.  My window will be 
0052-0109utc when HO-38 is mainly over arctic Canada and no footprint 
for lower-48.  It is a ascending pass so I will have about ten min of 
coverage (0055-0105).  Look for me on SSB.
