AO-27 over Europe



Observations:

Listened to AO-27 09.15 GMT today, 29th Nov, for the first time in quite
a while.

Good strong downlink for most of the pass but what a jumble of traffic:

CW
Packet? (data bursts seemed too long for APRS)
A couple (male and female) gossiping and giggling all through the pass -
no callsigns heard.
IW2NCW calling CQ

Tried to get back to the Italian to no avail.

How things have changed over the past 20 months!  The last time I tried
AO-27 there were just amateurs trying to make brief contacts, not people
using the system as a radio telephone.
