I wish I could work you Jon, but I have a hard time working the bird when 
it makes passes that are west of me. I haven't figured out why, I am just 
assuming that it has something to do with the way the satellite must be 
oriented and the antenna point away from me (?). Overhead passes and 
passes east of me are no problem, but if it goes west of me sometimes I 
can't even hear it. At least I usually get 2 good passes a day. Listen 
for me John and if you do hear me, by all means let me know!
