Glad to see you were able to try LilacSat-2. It has been a
mixed bag, with some being able to work it with just 5W,
and others saying a little more power (or a lot more) is
needed. Real life got in the way of my radio time last night,
so I was not able to get on that pass with you.

If you try on Saturday, be ready to get up early. The
next activation for the FM repeater is Friday afternoon,
and - assuming it stays on - it should be on through the
Saturday morning passes, and then switch off Saturday
