I got home two minutes before C was overhead and was on with W5PFG and KC4LE for the first half of the pass (lost the second half due to being on the south facing balcony).
They are excellent satellites. I wish they were higher, but they have very good signals and are very stable frequency wise. Definitely ideal for beginners.
With Daylight Saving Time in effect in much of the United States, the evening pass times are extremely convenient.

I'm confounded by the lack of activity on these satellites which are functioning quite well. I just called and called with no takers until close to the end of the pass I thought I heard a French Canadian trying to call me but it was getting too low to my horizon. More operators should be using these birds while they are still functioning.
