I tried during the 2030 UTC pass over VT. UO-11 was to the west of me and 
reached a max el of 17 degrees. Heard the 2M downlink max at S9 +10. S Band 
beacon peaked 1 S unit above the noise floor of my IF rig. I consider this to 
be very good seeing as it was such a low pass and I'm not using a preamp in 
front of the Drake. Hope this helps!
