I wanted to let W6IHG that I did hear him through ARISSat-1 during my 
1817 UTC pass.  I have an audio recording of that pass.  I believe I 
also heard WB2OQQ.  There was also a station sending SSTV through the 
transponder but the station was not using Doppler.  He went right out of 
the bandpass.  I tried to follow but could not.

I noticed that even though ARISSat-1 was in full sunlight, it went into 
Low Power mode.  I was able to get a pretty decent SSTV copy during that 
pass, also.  I am trying to determine what I am going to do when it 
terminates.  It has taken up a good portion of my operating since August 
4th.  HI  HI.

There is another pass coming up in 5 mins (1951UTC).  It will be a 13 
degree pass so that should be pretty decent also.
