Just a bit ago AO51 passed over my QTH (grid EN52) at an elevation of 57, I was able to hear my very first voice downlink on my mobile rig. I did not want to try and TX as it was too exciting just to hear traffic. I did not record the pass audio so I cannot even remember the call signs that I heard. I just know I heard something! I can't wait for the my birthday present now from the family next week, a new Arrow satellite antenna.
Thanks to all who gave me tips on using pass software, methods, etc.
