I also heard the '1, 2, 3, 4, 5' clearly, well after your LOS according to the tracker. W4UOO was trying to call you, I believe. I've also been noticing that I will hear FO-29 BEFORE AOS as well on some of these passes lately.
Not tropo, but talk about working over the horizon... ever work RS-12/13?!!! When in Mode K (15m up and 10m down) you could work a pass from another continent! Biggest shock I ever had was calling CQ with the bird descending over North America (LEO) and getting a call from OK1DIG. =^D There was an article in QST about an op who worked DXCC on RS-12/13 by using this method. Boy, I miss that bird.
