Thanks John, 

I also worked AC0RA and EA4CYQ on that pass. Wyatt and I finally connected after a few trys, and some improvising on my end. For some reason I was QRMing my 817 while uplinking with the 857. Luckily I had packed the Arrow diplexer and a BNC barrel and was able to use it as a low pass filter on the 817 receive which helped a lot. 

Unfortunately I'm headed home in the morning. This was a short trip, partially due to a two day departure delay due to a problem with one of the three longhaul Dreamliners Norwegian Air owns. The very rainy weather also kept me off the air quite a bit this trip. 

I was lucky enough to work AO-73 one pass this evening from JO65, and made two qsos. I had no idea you could fit so many stations in 20khz! Operating far from home is always interesting and a challenge.

73, Drew OZ/KO4MA for another 8 hours or so.
