Hi Drew. Glad you had a chance to work the bird. Paul N8HM and I made a contact on the earlier 23:43z pass. I lucked out with Murphy, my transmit HT's battery crapped out just after our QSO. Did not hear any stations on the bird other than the two of us. I don't have narrow band FM on that Kenwood HT but find if I hold the HT 3 times father away from my mouth and speak soft the bird has excellent audio. It is very nice of the controllers to allow us to work the repeater.
I always use the Celestrak keps.
