RS-12/13 Update



It appears not only is RS-12 in mode K as I reported last night, but RS-13 is simultaneoulsy in mode T.  Brent, VE5SWL, reports a CW QSO with John, K6YK, at 13:27z, 15m up (21.270) & 2m down (145.870):  "Very good signals 599 on CW with 30 watts into my INV VEE And on down link 5/8 VERT.
MY FT-847 UP AND A OLD ITC MULTII 2000 DOWN."

For those that have not experienced mode T, it is fabulous.  The only satellite I have heard that loud was SO-35.  

If you don't have two rigs, try it SPLIT mode on your HF+2m rig:  set the uplink at, say 21.280 MHz CW/USB, then listen for people responding to your call around 145.880 CW/USB (883 at beginning of pass and down to 877 at end of pass). By general convention, CW below 880 and USB above 880.  

There is a good eastern N.A. pass around 0110 utc tonight, followed by a great mid-west/west pass around 0250 utc tonight.  
73,
Jerry, K5OE
