I was able to copy telemetry with P3T starting at 2006z and my 2m IF indicated
2401.318.7.  The frequency did not appear to be stable, forgot to turn on

The signal was quite strong, and cut-off occurred at 2009z with an 
indicated MA of
25.4 on IT150 with the infamous set #3.  Elevation here in San Diego was
