AOS  was 0417, LOS 8.5 minutes later...only 13 degrees elevation for me in
EM85tm/tn. Didn't hear anything until 0422 and then only for about 1 minute;
not sure if it was BPSK or SSTV. Although signal was plenty strong, signal
cut out at times, probably due to satellite tumbling. Antenna is the
quad-band vertical Comet mounted on the car.

The next pass is in about 90 minutes @ 45 degrees elevation.  If a 13 deg
pass sounded like that, I'm sure the 45 degree one will wake me up! :-)
