Great to work WB8RJY and KC9ELU on that pass from here in EN82. Heard a few
other weak signals out there too. Signals were much weaker than when I
tried this setup from this spot in the middle of the night last year. Of
course, that's the problem with 10m downlinks when the band is open! I'll
try the next pass at 2144Z too.

Apologies for being off frequency. I'm struggling through tuning, holding
the Arrow, and holding my hand mic since my headset adapter broke a few
days ago. Luckily a replacement is waiting for me in my mailbox in DC!
