Tried again on the 23.00 UTC pass Tony.
Sent the same picture 3 times with a bit more power behind it. Trouble
was I was causing myself some intermod problems so I had to keep
dropping power between pics to adjust for doppler and Azimuth.

Anyway I wonder if anything got through at all tonight?
I guess that would have been my best chance today.

If you feel up to it I'll listen on 435.880MHz +/- QRM tomorrow (Tues)
night at about 23.20 UTC and see if I can capture anything from you.
