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.
