Hi Mark!

I was searching for call signs of satellite operators who have
worked CY9C, going back to the first two stations that worked
them (2E0SQL, KB1PVH) as reported via Twitter. I don't see those
calls in the log. For some satellite operators, I only saw HF QSOs
listed in the log (i.e., N8HM shows up for 30m CW). I did not expect
anything for my call, since as of now (1430 UTC) the log was only
updated through 1447 UTC yesterday, and I worked them on AO-7
at 2106 UTC yesterday.

I'm not worrying about the log search. Seems like satellite QSOs
don't show up in these log searches, at least not right away, since
the log records need to have the additional fields inserted to
indicate a satellite QSO. As Clayton said, if you still need a
CY9C in your satellite log, it's time to start looking at any passes
that cover both you and them. Don't just rely on seeing AMSAT-BB
posts or Twitter to plan your passes.
