Mark, et al

It sure is lonely when you are the only signal on the bird. My 80 watts 
uplink into crossed dipoles in attic most of the time will bring up the 
downlink. But I have noticed lots of flutter on the bird today and 
yesterday - from spin?

KC4LE and I have made daily contacts but I am not hearing others.

Is any one else trying to get setup beside Mark? Or are we all just busy?

Maybe we could post passes we plan to transmit on. For example, I will 
try to be on the 13:00Z and 19:40Z NO-84 passes across Virginia 
Sunday,the 13th.
