Not sure what my problem was, Bill. I don't think that you and I have ever 
had a QSO, but I remember hearing your call from past passes, so you are one 
of the folks I can usually hear.

I'll chalk it up to operator error (the most likely scenario) and get out 
again tomorrow morning.
Catch you on SO-50!
