I'm happy to report that I was able to pick up 11 frames of data, my first,
for FUNcube-2/UKube-1.  As Paul, N8HM, reported, it is loud, even with the
transponder turned on.

Now I need to figure out how to have all these birds exist in SatPC32 --
this is #12 for me and its a full house!

I'll try the transponder on CW next pass, about 17:12 UTC

73, Bob, WB4SON
