Hi Drew,

You might want to try calling pa5rwe on evening passes.
He can capture the satalite if need be and is not likely to give up on you.
His setup alows him to not only track the elevation and azimut of the
satalite but also the polarisation (rotating loopyagi's
http://www.loopyagi.da.ru )and can hear almost 100% of every pass.

good luck
