I was on a pass on Saturday and heard one QSO I moved down about 5k and
after finding myself started calling CQ. After 5 minutes or so I worked no
one. I was using SatPC32 and was about 10k away from where I was last time I
used the bird. Once d/l was found the s/w had no problem with the offset.

Hi Bob!

I think this will be a challenge for all of us, wherever we are on the
continent.  With VO-52's recent demise, maybe more will start to try working
AO-73.  Many (most?) have difficulties when relying on software to run the
radios, and end up trying manual control to deal with the uplink.  It's not
hard, but different.
Now we need to get more stations working AO-73, so we have a shot of working
73 different calls.
