[amsat-bb] AO-73 Lack of transponder activity

When FO-29 passes were around this time a couple of years ago, the passes
were always quite busy. Unfortunately, AO-73 has never drawn quite the same
crowd - perhaps due to it's lower orbit and/or frequency instability.

I won't be home for the evening passes tonight or tomorrow night, but next
week I'll try to get on them.

Anybody still a few short for the 73 on 73 Award could certainly use a QSO
with you!
