I did here AO-51 on that pass.  I got in late on it.  Footprint was not
on L48 anymore.  I did make some calls hoping for someone in Alaska.
I did hear some Russian stations and called them but their signal was
fading in and out.  I have worked them before and we have exchanged
QSL cards.  Anyways it was functioning ok.
