Heard the PSAT APRS beacon, KB2M, N3FCX, K0KOC, and an acknowledgement
of my own position on the 1737Z pass from hear in Washington, DC with
my Kenwood TH-D7A(G) and an Arrow antenna. Didn't get any decodes
below 25 degrees or so with just the HT. I guess that's to be expected
with the lower transmit power.
It doesn't look like any iGates picked the activity up on this pass.
