I was the only person on the 0855Z pass over North America. Maximum
elevation was 70 degrees. The satellite still sounded good. I again noted
that Narrow FM and making the fine adjustments for Doppler on the uplink
worked better. Downlink signals were stronger than SO-50, likely due to the
lower orbit. I will try again on 2-Jun at 0121Z and 0256Z.
Audio from the pass is here:
