  That was true! At 21:03z, even that was MA=149 and 59,000km away, I got
my loop signals at 419-539 with less than 100W EIRP of U-band uplink.
I cannot understand why some of stations used so much high-power...
  I was afraid about the interfare from signals of of Japanese illegal
435MHz tracker-mobile, but luckly it was not so much. Maybe most of them
was busy to fight with their sleepy driving :-( 21:03z was 6:03 local
time Hi.
