So pass 40808 per NOVA or ???  Pass 40808 has 5:15 min duration with max
elev= +3 degrees here.  So is the crossband repeater still in affect or are
we back to split-freq 2m?  I need to program the radio in advance and not
enought time to switch over during the short pass.  If UHF-up I have to
manually switch cables around to do that.

I can run 170w FM on 144.490 if needed for the 1900-km range.  It is now
2345utc so have an hour for e-mail to go 2-way for answers.
