Re: UO-36 uplink woes

Hi Tyler,

Your uplink frequency agrees with mine.  I also have difficulties getting 
into this bird from time to time.  After asking around a bit, one or two 
commented on polarization as being important on the uplink to this

is plenty.

If you are able to uplink at 9600 baud to other birds, I imagine you are 
wired up right and maybe are seeing the apparent "deafness" that I have 
seen, and continue to see from time to time.  Wish I had more of a concrete
