Ahhhh  OK!  That's the one I called "that first island in the Azores" and the last packet was...  oops. wait a minute...thinking...
 I better recalculate.  I may have messed up...

AND I DID.  It was 400 miles to radio contact.  800 to over the island.

So radio contact 2h 55m from that last packet (03:50 z).

So it'll get picked up around before 06:00 z  assuming I did that correctly, which is questinable...

Sorry...getting late and wife asking questions...
