Man, that was a quick pass. Just worked WB8OTH, and then KC4LE and me worked 
it to LOS, also heard N8HM.  Signal started to sound like it had an echo on 
it. SatPC32 was reporting an altitude  of 161, when it passed over me in 
Florida on a 35 degree pass. Is that in Kilometers or Miles? ...

Wow, it's like trying to track a vehicle driving by at highway speed!

Several people heard on 1645 utc pass over USA just now, though.  No
telemetry received.
