ECHO NOT heard in pass over New Zealand



Folks,

Using those keps, and NOVA v2.1, I showed a perfect pass right overhead here
in Wellington, New Zealand (approx 41S, 174E).

NOTHING heard on 435.155 +/- doppler.

I hope its because the transmitter was turned off as it was not over North
America. Anyone know?

Regards,
