Hello Jerry, Doug and the group. This afternoon just before ISS appeared
I compared the AOS times of the Julian day 208 keps with day 216.  Day
216 is the 4th of Aug.  They differed by almost seven minutes.  Moral is
to update often.  I uploaded PSK 31 signals for all three late afternoon
passes on 29.402 MHz but did not hear any response on 70 Cm.  Cliff K7RR
