Oops... I jumped the gun.  Well, I didn't catch the "change in days" from 
your original post to amsat-bb... which pretty clearly said,

Oh well.... not a problem, but UTC would have been better.  UTC would also 
have put the whole country on the same 4 or 5 passes rather than the time 
drift where east coast stations will start the experiment early and finish 
early.  That may also change the "competition factor" slightly.

I'll run the experiment again tonite on my local time zone.  Maybe I'll even 
get through tonite...  ;-)
