Re: Another interesting use for RS-13



I wonder if a guy might get lucky and get a QSO or two by using mode K,
and taking
advantage of that same propagation on the uplink on 15 meters?  
I hear  plenty of 15 meter DX stations coming thru the bird, I mean
stations that are not 
in the footprint by any means.

73,
John, K6YK
