I did not even bother listening to UO-14 today, but it sure was nice to see a lot
more activity on FO-20 and FO-29.  There were some really high power stations
causing the AGC to clamp down, but overall there were lots of stations to hear and
talk to.  There were a few that were not really hearing the satellite very well, but
I expected that...

Got to go, FO-29 is rising (so is UO-14, but guess which I'll be on).
