I think you may have your times off Paul... I show passes over North America for May 1st at 0940 and 1115 EASTERN time (EDST). =^(  Which only makes sense, because the 0930Z-1400Z operating period would need to coincide with passes over EU for people to be working LY5N.

Otherwise, I'd be outside waving my yagi around looking for you. =^D
