Just curious --
Does the 10m uplink have any bounce/skip off the atmosphere? Seems like you should be able to "reach" around beyond line of sight at that frequency. Right?

 That's great, Roland!  Thanks for the updates.

The elevation is still too low for me to receive any of the 70cm downlink, 
but I have been hearing some of the 2m APRS on 145.825.

It was great news to see the post from Bob regarding the orbit slowly moving 

If you can, please monitor the 70cm downlink for any sign of PSK31 - since 
Bob announced that the PSK31 transponder was active, I have been 
transmitting on the 10m uplink on the chance that the satellite hears me 
even at such low elevations.
