If anyone out west will be up in an hour or so, I will be outside
looking to work the AO-73 pass that will be going by around 
0610 UTC.  With tomorrow being a holiday, and with no need  
for an alarm clock (other than my four-legged alarm clock, 
who has her own schedule), I'll be on there trying to make 
some QSOs and trying things out with my radios from the 
back yard.  

I have uploaded a pair of videos with satellite audio and photos
from a couple of AO-73 passes I have worked over the past 
two nights. This is from a pass I worked on Monday evening 
(Tuesday, UTC):


and here is one from Tuesday evening (Wednesday, UTC):


The second link in particular is a good one for those not on
the US west coast to hear the activity out here. That was a
very good, orderly pass for those of us who stayed up to 
play radio.
