Worked Bill, ZL2AYZ at 0915 UTC with EO-79 in full eclipse.  Signals quite 
variable and never particularly strong and at times somewhat marginal copy. 
We repeated the exercise on AO-73 at 0953 UTC with strong to very strong and 
consistent signals although it should be noted that the EO-79 pass was at 12 
deg. elevation while the AO-73 pass was at 35 deg. elevation.
Thanks for the opportunity to try a new one.

Hi all,
Report on EO-73 transponder operation 0830 hrs UTC   4/515  ( My  location
Wales -UK -IO81EM.
At 0833 hrs UTC,    I heard Peter 2E0SQL calling CQ on  downlink frequency
145.964 Mhz.
He was 5/9 but I could also hear some other burst of noise? -    Due to my
terrain and obstructions I could not get access into the satellite but  will
try again on the next pass which is a much higher elevation.
Congratulation to the team and to Peter of course for his success.
