I heard one or two stations calling through AO-10 during this morning's
pass. All signals were clear with no signs of FMing though very weak
even when the bird was near the horizon for me, normally my best
reception. It will depend which way the bird's aerial is facing at the
moment though.

I could just hear my own downlink when I called TA1D but I don't think
he heard me :(

Let us hope things continue to improve.
