I am referring to the pass at about 23:25Z which was possibly too low to the
east for you. I am sending my pictures in a handheld operation and don't
have the ability to have an actual exchange with anyone. Looking forward to
trying again and perhaps getting some feedback if anyone copies my picture.
I am juggling an Arrow antenna, two HTs and a VC-H1 to get my pictures sent
and to receive and record the pass.
