My update for later pass today ( a low elevation pass )
Beacon heard: Acquisition  1533 hrs GMT when the satellite was out to  the 
West and the Atlantic ocean.
Strong initially but noticed a tendency for fading, whether this was  
perhaps spin or due to the low elevation 
and terrain from my QTH.  Lost signal approx. 1538 hrs GMT
Same set up:  Kenwood TS 2000 plus ELK antenna  and tracking with  SATPC32 
and AZ/EL Rotator.
