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.
