I heard Sputnik 41 during a near-zenith Mir pass late Friday (November
13) night at Cedar Rapids, IA, USA.  Voice and "beep" FM transmissions. 
Heard two different English recordings + French + Russian.   Signal was
very good, full-quieting into my HAM handitalkie, but with drop-outs
that indicate that the sat is tumbling.
