AO-73 Success

Tonight I listened to one AO-73 pass and made several contacts on another.

On the first pass, I had a maximum elevation of nine degrees.  I tried to work a station or two but was unsuccessful.  I was more excited to listen.  I did call CQ and heard myself, and managed to snag a good recording of it.

On the second pass, which covered most of the lower 48 states, I was surprised to hear so few stations.  I heard about ten stations and worked three.  Several stations could not appear to find their own signal on the passband and weren’t able to make contact (even with themselves.)

I have made a few recordings and will clean them up and post very soon.
