I worked two passes, one on FO-29, the other AO-73. I was trying to work
stations that appeared to me, to be looking for their only contact. I made 2
contacts. I just looked at my notes, I had over 15 calls written down,
another words I heard them but they weren't hearing me. My guess is that all
of them couldn't find or hear me on their downlink. The one regular sat user
I did work was Paul, on the first call. A usual FD on the sats :-)

How did everyone's Field Day go? Heard quite a bit of QSOs made. Heard quite
a bit of struggling too!

Weather was awful, so I was just operating from the grounds of my apartment
building here in DC. I managed 20 QSOs with 5 watts, which wasn't easy with
how overloaded the transponders were with strong signals.

Next year maybe I'll help out a local club on the sats.
