It sounds like Mike has had better success than most.  Bruce, KK5DO, and I 
tried it on an evening 85 degree pass a couple of weeks ago--also at 29.380.  
With 100 W into a 4x4 antenna, I could hear my downlink about S1, but with 
considerable QSB.  I would hear my signal for about 2-1/2 seconds every 7

In the past I have found it is easier to hit when moving towards you, but did 
not notice any difference this last time.
