I used to calculate sat position for my anipodal node.  I regularly 
listened for various birds at this time.  RS-15 was ONE of the only birds I 
ever heard when it's position was directly over the opposite side of the 
earth from me (antipodal.)  I always thought this was an interesting 
phenomenon, and studied it for a while.

I have also heard RS-15 WELL over the horizon.  But to be fair, 10 meter 
propagation sometimes causes some amazing path openings.
