ARRISat-1 was in pretty good shape when it finally
turned on after being in eclipse this morning around
1510z or so.  I had a good qso with WB0KFC and heard
someone else (maybe N8MH?) at the end of the pass.  The
bird went off the air around 1516z before my LOS.

The next pass at 1643z should be good for western and
the southeastern USA.  Give it a try.  It's 15 degrees for
me but I'll be calling.  Run as much power on the uplink
as you have. It doesn't hear very well with a stubby
antenna.  Hope to work you.
