0240 pass, I heard W8AB calling CQ on SSB with no replies, and someone
sending dits on CW.

I have not listened for the birds in about 6 years.  Back when I was active,
AO-51 and AO-27 were packed to the gills and no one used the linear
transponders much (FO-29, VO-52).  I expected to hear lots of signals.  Is
it really that quiet?
