It was really strong this morning (Monday) in western NC at 1534 Z; the
strongest I've ever heard it (53 degree pass).  I listened to two passes
yesterday - 43 deg and 47 deg, 90 minutes apart - which were not nearly as
strong; the latter pass was about an hour after local sunset, so the sat
may have been in partial eclipse by then. (Station set-up in all 3 passes
is the FT 8900R with a Comet Quad-Band mobile vertical, but the car was
stationary during all those passes.)
