On the ARISSat-1 pass just ended here (23 degrees max elevation), results  
were about the same as yesterday.  I heard my CW downlink for about a  
minute, peaking 559.  Several other CW signals were in there, but  I couldn't get 
their calls due to the deep fades.
Bruce appears to be right that the transponder's performance depends  
largely on the spacecraft's orientation.
