There was no shortage of activity on the XW-2A,C, and F transponders 
this morning.  On the passes around 1300 UTC, stations were heard and 
worked from the east to west coasts of the USA and Canada.

These are some of the easiest transponders to hear.  They are very 
workable with the most modest of antennas and low power.
