1735Z pass.  Good up and downlink on a 5 degrees pass to the east and 
northeast.  No one to work.

Next pass is 1916Z.  I it is 78 degrees max ele for us to the west.

We will try to work as many as we can. As a reminder it is much easier 
for me to find you in the passband if you just transmit on 145.985.  I 
am tuning +- 10 or so from my downlink and I can follow your Doppler 
without difficulty.

We may try the 2106Z pass tonight but the last one of these skimmers to 
the west there was no one on to work.

We have had a great and long opening on 6 meters today all the way to 
Colo.  Ken worked a couple hundred on CW and some SSB.  We think it was 
enhanced by tropo here - getting us into the Es spot up near Puerto Rico.

On HF we got the RTTY going after some struggles and it is now a total 
zoo on 14.082.  We will probably keep RTTY going today and tomorrow. 
Tomorrow is our last day of operating.
