Dang. Sorry I missed you on that earlier AO-91 pass On ISS I couldn't get in with any consistency until the end of the pass when it was over the ocean. That's typical though.

I had success getting Christy KB6LTY and many others FM25 on the AO-91 pass at 17:22z. It was only a 3.9 degree pass and I was using my new 9700 setup. Worked great.

I tried AO-7 after that pass but didn't hear much until half way through when AC9O came in strong. Couldn't find myself on dowlink and realized I was at 435 not 432 MHz. That was 3/4 way through pass and still never found myself. Oh well.

I am done for the day. I have a 4.5 hr drive to my friends' in Fredericksburg VA. Might activate this area again around the 20th or 21st. Might.

73, John Brier KG4AKV

I tried both the first AO-91 pass (settings for my D72 where all messed up since I last used it, not sure why - ended up missing my opportunity) as well as the 16:10 ISS pass (high power stations dominating the pass..... seriously, after 3 attempts to complete your qso, let somebody else try.... sheesh).

Thanks for the notice and the roving, though.
