There was no shortage of activity on the XW-2A,C, and F transponders this morning. On the passes around 1300 UTC, stations were heard and worked from the east to west coasts of the USA and Canada.
These are some of the easiest transponders to hear. They are very workable with the most modest of antennas and low power.

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.
