Nice pass just now, contacts with KO6TZ and K8YSE.  Both sounding really

I was using keps for 2017-008F (since they load automatically into
Gpredict); seemed to work ok.  I lost the bird a minute or two early,
then realized that my rotor decided to swing around just at the wrong
time, and it was too late to stop it.  But even so, I'd say those keps
are just a tad late, as both Bob and John had already found themselves
and were chatting when I first got the rig and antennas configured. 

QSB was not much of a problem (operator issues were more severe :) ).

I didn't check the telemetry side of things this pass.

Equipment here is a Yaesu 847.  2m 2x8 element CP beam for receive, and
2x15 CP beam for transmit.  No amps or preamps needed.

Nice bird!
