16:15 UTC EO-79 pass over Texas, USA (grid: EM21)
- 7 stations worked including 1 DX, a few others heard
- Had to change RX polarity a little more often than TX polarity; overall very easy to hear like AO-73
- Very little uplink power is necessary as with AO-73
- Could easily work the entire transponder from end-to-end of pass band
Many thanks for activating the transponder and for making it available to the amateur radio community!

Just worked the 16:15 UTC overhead Pass of EO-79, Working 3 Stations N8HM NS3L W5PFG down to AOS. The bird faded alot so alot of polarity switching was required on the downlink and uplink but signal strength wise it sounds like AO-73. Was a rush working that pass, alot of stations were on!
