Re: K5OE Comments on UO-14



I was also on both UO-14 passes, and only heard K5OE on the west pass.  I 
was unable to get through to Jerry with 5 watts and the 2 m mag mounted 
vertical dipole described on his home page.  I was not able to make any 
contacts on the east pass, but did get a contact on the west pass.
