I will be on the next AO-73 pass at 0632 UTC tonight. Hope to hear anyone else out west that might still be up and around the radio at that hour.
The last pass around 0455 UTC was the best pass to the east that I've worked on this satellite so far. I made only 2 QSOs, but could hear my 5W signals through the transponder from 2 minutes after AOS almost until LOS, up around .965 to .967. That was fun!
