Hi Mike,
I set up here for the 12:44 pass over Europe with the same outcome :(
I did try transmitting on the uplink in case it doesn't create the
'quietening' of normal background noise like AO-27.
I assume the times given were UTC.
Maybe there was a technical problem.
Looking forward to trying again another time.
