I had fun working those 3 passes earlier.  I was in Burnaby, a suburb to the 
east of Vancouver in CN89lg, and made QSOs all across North America.  Even
XE2AT called me on AO7.  I logged 13 QSOs on a western AO51 pass, 7 on AO7, 
and 4 more on FO29.  Fun!

I still plan on bing at CO60/CO70 tomorrow.  No guarantees on how early,
but with sunset around 0500 UTC up here I may work more passes than I 
originally planned.  Please note my call here does not use the traditional
VE prefix... when I obtained my Canadian license in 2002, VE7EWK was
already issued.  The VA prefix had been available in many provinces
for a couple of years, and I went with VA7EWK.  This is the first time in 8+
years VA7EWK has been on anything other than local repeaters; I used
CJ7EWK on satellites from Vancouver in late 2008.
