Unfortunately Marco (CU7BC) had a massive rain cell over his area (the
kind the temperature drops around 6ºF in 2 minutes) about half way AO-7
pass. I could hear his whistle trying to lock on the downlink when
suddenly he vanished.
I was on the frequency with Frank K4FEG and KB1RVT, and called him
several times. The downlink was very good, and I had a first on SATs for
me - a "chat" with Frank rather then a quick QSO. I ended up calling
Marco's cell phone to figure out the rain had caused flooding.
Later on XW-2F there was no contacts from the East Coast. But I got both
of our CQ calls on tape. Check it out at

I'll keep everyone posted of future activities, while I'm still trying
to get 3 other guys into the birds.
