AO-16 just passed with a max elevation of 24 degrees. Was able to work the following stations:
WDOE XE2AT NN6T W6CQZ W7KKE WD0EQP
First contact when bird 1.8 degrees and last when bird was 2.8 degrees. Could still copy downlink when at less than 1.0 degree. Using 10 watts.
Very nice sounding bird. Thanks AO-16 Team for a job well done.
