AO-27 Observation

Earlier in the week I posted a question about why it was difficult for me to
hear AO-27 when it made passes west of me. Just a few minutes ago, I heard
it loud & clear on a pass west of me <grin>. Normally with my HT on passes
east of me I have to almost hold the HT upside down to clearly hear the
bird, well guess what? It appears that if I hold the HT right-side-up on
passes west of me I can hear it. I had been trying to listen to it with the
HT upside down and it just won't work on western passes. I wish I was smart
enough to understand the mechanics of things such as this but I'm learning a
bit each day, so maybe one day I'll get there.
