Apparently one of the digital birds has been fairly close to UO-14 lately.  The
Asian interference is more of a problem.  Once that starts (it sounds like
commercial 2 way traffic), then only the high powered, well equipped stations
can get in. :-(

But we still get around 12 good minutes on a pass before that happens (or
after, if it's heading south).


.. get your attention.
