Likewise, I am also determined to make voice contact before the 23rd...
I listened a little while after Neil, at 23:50 UTC, and called on
using my 5W HT and rubber-ducky antenna at first and then switching to
5el yagi.
I heard nothing except the R0MIR packet beacon. This is strange because
should have been awake then - until 0100 UTC in fact....

Anyway I will keep trying :)
