On the 18:10 UTC FO-29 pass, C6AGZ was around 435.863 MHz (freq. at 
satellite.)  As he drifted more toward the center during the pass, 
stronger stations than him somewhat overcame his QRP signal.

I recorded the pass in SDR.  Unfortunately a few stations on CW showed 
up running entirely too much power and most other signals on the 
transponder's pass band got much, much weaker.  It's like someone 
flipped a switch.
