I was browsing the AAR29 satellite logger site yesterday
(http://aar29.free.fr/sat/indexlogin.html) and noticed that JO2ASQ
reported working 24 different stations on a pass of AO-73 on February
28th and 28 on a pass on February 14th.

That's absolutely incredible! I'd love to see a pass like that here in
the United States - on any of the many linear transponder satellites
we have passing all times of day these days - AO-7, FO-29, AO-73,
XW-2A, XW-2C, and XW-2F all work great, but FO-29 passes are the only
ones where there is really much activity heard.
Let's use the satellites!
