Skyking now - code word was "Uranus". I'm sure we've heard that one before.

Edit: Yup, that was back on 20/4 at 0511z. Not sure of the significance of repeated skyking code words, but last time it was paired with "Venus".

Edit 2: As a side note - yesterday is the quietest day since I started taking records, with only 8 calls in the entire UTC day. Anyone catch any that I missed?

Edit 3: Uh, disregard that. Typo, it was 11 calls :D

Edit 4: Another two back to back Skykings, couldn't catch code words but it wasn't Venus. Sounded like the message came from Carlisle? 0624z.

Edit 986: EAM now, from Carlisle, 0641z.

Edit B: EAM at 0648z.
