Interesting....



I was just listening to AO-27 as it made a very low pass, in fact I could
barely hear it, but one thing was really weird, I had to turn my HT upside
down in order to copy it. Can anyone elaborate on why, when the HT was
upside down with the antenna pointed at the ground I could hear the
satellite, but when the HT was upright I couldn't hear it?
