Re: AO-10

Chuck, yes AO10 is still going but it appears to be on it's last legs
unless there is a "resurrection" from some additional solar panel
alignment.  The beacon is very weak and FM's at about a 45 second rate.
All translated signals follow that same rate of course.  Most of the
activity available to the Western USA centers about 145.915.  I have been
trying to keep CW alive around 145.910 since the slow FM-ing is far easier
to cope with on CW.  73  Cliff K7RR
