Yes, lots of stations heard on AO-51 SSB/CW -> FM side.  Though I'd try to participate, but my CW is pretty rusty.  It was really hard to copy the CW of stations (including my own) which are under computer control, as the CW tone kept jumping with the periodic Doppler corrections.  Late in the pass things settled down (fewer Doppler corrections needed), and that made things easier.

I'm pretty sure I heard WA8SME in there, but couldn't compose myself to answer in a coherent fashion (I think I just sent 'de' and my call back), and then the pass was over.  Mark, was that you?
