I worked 4C1JPG on the 02:30z pass of SO-50 last night. They were very strong into the satellite (full quieting).
I don't think they were hearing very well, which might be the language barrier, but is more likely SO-50's wandering transmitter frequency or an antenna/pre-amp/radio issue.

I worked them on PSK31 this weekend. Looks like they've been very active in the evenings.
Has anyone worked them on the birds?
