Re: UO-14



Hi Sangat,

>From experience a couple of years back with a mini handheld (VX1) and a
rubber duck antenna, I can confirm that all of 2 meters including
144.8-146.00 is full wall to wall with cbers in Jakarta, Ujung Pandang
 Indonesia) and in Cebu (Phillipines)

So I am amazed that you could hear anything when the satellite is over those
horizons!

best wishes
