I remember calling CQ on RS 12/13 and have to say listening on 2m so the 
JA's wouldn't call me back on 15m. The good old days...

I also heard the '1, 2, 3, 4, 5' clearly, well after your LOS according to 
the tracker. W4UOO was trying to call you, I believe. I've also been 
noticing that I will hear FO-29 BEFORE AOS as well on some of these passes 

Not tropo, but talk about working over the horizon... ever work RS-12/13?!!! 
When in Mode K (15m up and 10m down) you could work a pass from another 
continent! Biggest shock I ever had was calling CQ with the bird descending 
over North America (LEO) and getting a call from OK1DIG. =^D  There was an 
article in QST about an op who worked DXCC on RS-12/13 by using this method. 
Boy, I miss that bird.
