Re: FodTrack & Win98



Well, after a reboot all seems hunky dory, so you can forget my last post
about Win 98 & Fodtrack.

I spent the day putting up an Az/El rotator, two DCI filters at the mast
before the SSB preamps, a remote polarization switch and two Arrow antennas
(to keep the neighbors happy). This went on top of my apartment block.

Glad to report all's working _really_ well. And what a difference to my old
omni!

The DCI filters are really making a difference to the pager & trunk radio
intermod I was getting before. I've had no problem at all!

Shame there wasn't anyone to talk to on FO20 when it came round, but I had
by far the best downlink I've ever had. Had to drop the power to 10W.

I can easily copy all the digital satellites so far with ease now.

Now if only I'd got my act together six months ago to put all this stuff
up...
