Would anyone happen to have any recordings from HO-68 over Fathers Day
Weekend from June?

I have had an unfortunate incident with my mp3 recorder which had a couple
of passes of satellites from June 19 & 20 stored on it.   I typically copy
my recordings to a computer late in the evenings or early morning, but we
were going to a family fathers day dinner and didn't get a chance to copy
them over.  To make my story short, I had a CreativeLabs recorder which I
discovered did not like bouncing off of a brick patio.  I thought it was
just the switch on the unit which failed so I grabbed another unit from
ebay.  After putting the drive from into the new-to-me unit I was not able
to recover the data.  I then tried another drive with different firmware
with again no success.  Also the way Creative handles the formatting my PC
(Windows and Linux) could not view data off of the drive.  I have since
grabbed a different recorder that has a good clip on it.

So now I've hit the web searching for possible help.  I am fairly sure the
pass was Sunday the 20th, I know it was HO-68 and I worked a CM station
which was maritime mobile.  I have listened to the recording from K8YSE (who
has a excellent site by the way) but my qso was not captured.  I wish I
could verify the time but in my desire to try to fix the recorder I failed
to document the passes.  I want to say it was around 14:00-18:00 UTC on

If anyone has a recording I would greatly appreciate if you would let me
