Hi Mike,
I get it tomorrow at 1451z, phase 6, and I see that you get it about 1539z
phase 16....I'm using a kit converter, LO, and homebrew pre-amp that worked 
very good on
O13.  After the recovery my sigs are very weak in comparison to pre-recovery.

Not sure if I should upgrade, but a comparison with you or anyone that 
would care
to compare would be beneficial.

I'll report to you "as soon as I get unbusy", hi...

Tnx my friend..
