I think I almost worked AA9FL(??), but since I didn't get/confirm your grid
square, it doesn't count :-) (And not sure of your call, since I wanted to
get familiar with this particular sat before I start recording.)

This was my* first* attempt at AO-85, and didn't hear myself until about 10
deg before LOS.

I also noticed I'm getting some desense when I transmit (using D72A into
Arrow antenna)

I might try the 2 May 0225Z pass, but that one is only 16 degrees from
