I worked a couple of passes yesterday, using a TH-D72 HT and Elk
log periodic antenna. After not working this satellite in a couple
of weeks, its performance seemed to be just as good as it was
previously. I was able to work 2 stations on each of the two passes
I tried, and was able to get my HT's packets retransmitted when
FalconSat-3 was 3 or 4 degrees above the horizon - something I can't
do at home, but was easy to do in the desert 3 hours away from
home, and 5 minutes from the Mexican border in southern Arizona.
