Nothing heard from RAFT in EM-66 either. I listened a good 15 minutes prior to the lastest keps, and 15 minutes after.

Neither Nick K5QXJ nor I heard any sound coming from RAFT during tonight's pass around 22:00CDT. I had my antenna in a fixed position, pointing towards where RAFT was supposed to come from based on the latest (07148.59248876) keps that I had. I had my pre-amp on, the radio on 145.827MHz and the polarization of my 2m cross yagi set to what gave me the best signal in the past listening to RAFT. I believe that all was set correctly at my station, but with the squelch wide open, I heard no sound from RAFT.

The current forecast for # 29661 RAFT with the ELSETS 07147.183... - 07148.164... with SFX 065 and ap 005 shows with the special perturbation method the decay on May 30, 13:33 UTC +/- 06 hours descending over 43.64°N and 214.96°E.
Looks like we get one more shot...
Lets everyone that is interested to park their ground station pointing at AOS for RAFT and recording packets. This is a great opportunity to see the heat up of an AMSAT as it re-enters.
Do NOT bother with automatic tracking, since arrival will be much earlier than any keps you can get..
If you can APRS-IGate the packets then that is even better, sinec we can all see the telemetry then in real time.
