AO-85 passes sounded good over the east coast this weekend. However, I set up for the 04:06 pass and only heard what sounded like the satellite back in test mode (female voice announcing this is Fox-1).
What is the status for this week, as there is a very good overhead pass today at 20:06 UTC?
On a side note, I like others I believe, have found that getting into AO-85 with your HT and handheld Arrow or Elk antenna to be almost impossible. Last evening I set up the Icom and used 20 watts, that was the first time I actually made more than one contact.
