Indeed...I poked my nose into a couple and worked K5OE, N0ZHE, KK5DO, 
W3VVP as well as KE4AZN and then later K6CCC, N6ORS, WA6FWF, KB9KHM and 
KO4MA. Monitored a QSO between K6CCC and KL0BK, with whom I managed a 
quick contact before he went QRT up Alaska way.

Every once in a while I'd take a pretty deep fade, but it always came 
back up after a minute or two. I had several reports that I had a 
strong signal on the bird; I still need some recieve-side improvements 
though. Having figured out how to get SatTrack to calculate 
uplink/downlink pairs has been very helpful and kept me largely out of 
the "ditting" business.

 S1 rocks hard.
