Admittedly, nobody south of Panama showed up (I was not surprised), but in 
the 30 min period between 0045 and 0115, I had nice, casual QSO's with K7AZ, 
KB9KHM, W0TUP, and VE3BCG.  Signals were 55 to 57 with only slight fading.  
Several ops mentioned the 1800 utc window for AO-40 tomorrow morning.
