Evening SO-50 NA passes tonight

If anybody is like me and likes to burn the midnight oil, I'll be working
the two overnight SO-50 passes, the first from 0638-0652Z and the second
from 0820-0831Z. I know that traffic is very low on the birds at night, but
I just thought I'd throw it out there. My station is now in the 'tune and
tweak' mode and I am attempting to work as many passes as possible so I can
plot my antenna/receiver response vs. the pass altitude and bearing to get
an idea of my environment here; unfortunately it's tough as I am at work
from 2100-0500Z.

also if anybody wants to chat about some sort of overnight sked, that'd be
awesome - I'm sure there's at least one or two NA ops that keep the same
hours that I do. :P

Up to four contacts on the birds, enjoying every pass as it's exciting as
heck! my YL figured out that every time a certain alarm goes off on my cell
phone I scamper back into the shack for 15 minutes and the U-110 starts
thump thump thumping :)
