there is a regular group that uses these XW sats, including 2A, in the early am on the western passes. The evening passes
I have noticed minimal use.

  I've been on a few times by myself.  I think sat ops forget about it at times.

  It's generally been on full-time. The CW beacon on 145.660 MHz or the 9k6
GMSK telemetry on 145.640 MHz should always be heard if there's no activity
on the transponder.
