Jerry and Bob.....
Good enough!  We heard our own downlink signals on the 1955Z
pass very well.  There were additional signals on + 1000 Hertz
as well as our +800 Hertz.  The pass coming up at 2128Z will
be West of the US but we will try anyway just in case Bob might
not have gotten the repeater off.  Unfortunately, it seems the
return signals on 70 Cm are demodulating rather weak audio.
The RF signal is terribly strong near S9 most of the time.
