Re: AO-10 Contact

Hello K5OE@aol.com.

Interesting contact! :-)  I've never tried keying the PTT, except for testing
portable gear.  My problem with RS-13 is the Rx on the downlink.  I'm still
waiting for the 10m box to arrive in the shop. :-(

On another note, tried to listen for Stensat at approx 0900z tonight on a 50
degree pass.  Nothing heard.  OPAL was loud and clear.  I tried some test
transmissions on the uplink frequency, but heard nothing coming back.

Might have to dig out the old 70cm beam from the shed. :-)


.. Excuse me, have you seen my marbles - I think I've lost them
