19:34z pass...  Interesting.  I didn't hear Pratham until the towards
the end of the 9-degree pass, but accidentally managed to catch Duchifat
going by...

Audio at: http://home.wavecable.com/~ko6th/capture.wav

This is all manually controlled for doppler, so a bit of a mess from
that perspective.  Pratham's signal begins about 1:30 into the
recording; same chirpy CW as before.  Dutchifat CW ID starts at 22
seconds, with a burst of packet after that.  As a reference, the local
birdie you hear at the start of the recording is at about 145.981.6.
