Good evening,

I realized shortly before the last FO-29 pass that both FO-29's and
VO-52's AOS were seconds apart on the east coast of the United States,
so I decided to scan the upper half of the passband in LSB to see if I
could hear any signals. I heard a weak CW signal and also a
conversation. Unfortunately, I could not copy any callsigns, but I
clearly heard a voice saying "73" as my dial read 435.902 MHz LSB
about halfway through the FO-29 pass.

Cool to hear! I know I've heard the AO-73 beacon via FO-29 before, but
never a conversation from another satellite.
