Agreed. All the complaints about lack of transponders and such, and these are nearly empty most passes. They may not be high up, but with a train of them coming by you can chat for long enough to run out if things to say!

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.
