Anyone in N. America up early for AO-7 Mode B try? On the next pass starting about 0925Z, my footprint will extend deep into N. America, Minnesota to the west and Georgia to the south. Look for me on the top portion of the passband, 145.959 or so. Signals were very strong on the last pass, and I copied the bird from my hilltop QTH to -0.5 degrees.
Has the AO-7 orbit shifted higher? I don't recall such big windows to N. America last year.
