Allan & All,
Yes- it sounds great-  I hope to work the bird on New Years day.  The passes aren't co-operating with my location when I am available.  
Someone should record some audio so we'll give a listen one way or another.
Happy New Year to All in the AMSAT realm & those that want to be !!
Dee, NB2F
