On the 18:10 UTC FO-29 pass, C6AGZ was around 435.863 MHz (freq. at
satellite.) As he drifted more toward the center during the pass,
stronger stations than him somewhat overcame his QRP signal.
I recorded the pass in SDR. Unfortunately a few stations on CW showed
up running entirely too much power and most other signals on the
transponder's pass band got much, much weaker. It's like someone
flipped a switch.
