Re: UO-14 listening/working



UO-14 is working well.  On the last westerly pass at 5:00 UTC Randy
N7SFI did work several stations with a rubber duck from a restaurant parking
lot.

I used 20 watts into a 2 meter omni eggbeater and received on a 70 cm
eggbeater.
(didn't want to scare the neighbors with the Arrow outside).  However N2YQP
got
smart and worked UO-14 it from inside his place with the trusty Arrow and HT
combo.

In all UO-14 is a success here in Colorado.  It is great having a bird to
work at night
in FM mode!!  With the problems on the new birds it looked like we may not
have seen
a new FM voice bird for a while.  UO-14 is a nice unexpected present.

                Thanks!!!
