I finally found myself right as the pass ended, I've got a direct overhead
at 05:00 .
At least I know a starting point.

It's definitely running high. I tune manually and I can usually estimate
where I need to tune my uplink for AO-7 and VO-52 quite close when I want to
call a station. I had a hell of a time on the last pass of AO-73. I found
myself once and couldn't make any QSOs.
Will try again tomorrow night!
