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.
