  I have been listening for a week or so now and have heard nothing at all
in VK, no packet, voice or SSTV!

Perhaps they are still too busy? Maybe my tracking is way out? Come to
think, I haven't heard much from UO-11 either.

Perhaps someone could run my QTH through their tracking program and see if
it matches. VK2XCI/MHGS LOCATION. 1017 hours 04May,2000.GPS After removal
of SA.
