Patrick, I too worked that pass from my office (Priest between University &
Broadway (DM43ak for non Phoenicians). I, too, heard the tail end of on
image and got the next one which like you indicated started just past mid
pass. My image had a little noise toward the end, nothing a little polarity
twisting on the elk took care of that. 

Gonna try the 2006 Local pa10 degree pass and then the 2142 lcl 61 degree
pass. I think that would be the last passes before they deactivate it.

My AOS on that pass was around 2211 UTC. I barely heard the end of
one picture before a break. I copied one picture perfectly,
starting at 2215 UTC. It was a 21-degree pass, and the picture I
copied was around the middle of the pass. I tweeted the picture
already, and will upload it to the ARISS SSTV picture archive
shortly. I just got home a little bit ago, my first chance to take my
recording from that pass and feed it into RX-SSTV on my tablet.

I have been working an earlier shift at my office this week, which
worked out perfectly for the afternoon ISS passes. I might try to catch
one evening pass before going to bed tonight, but the 1100 UTC alarm is
still hard to accept. Only two more days of that... :-)
