Well _My_ last 4 passes (UT) were....
0646 Nothing
0822 More Nothing
0957 Still Nothing
1134 Absolutely Nothing

All the previous days have followed a similar pattern with the only
slight variation being the deviation of pass times - and believe me, I
have *tried*, I have listened to every single one so far!

If anyone else in South Africa has perhaps heard anything, please let me
know as I am feeling very dispondent and almost ready to give up... I
don't think I will be able to QSO or at least *hear* the shuttle before
it lands on Wednesday UTC, also dunno when they will be packing up the
SAREX stuff - I hear it is the last SAREX mission as well......oh dear
