Re: AO40 Copy on 17 April



AO-40 Signals are getting better from orbit to orbit, got 67 CRC OK out of
188 during MA 240 - 250, today. I lost a couple from good to bad, caused by
terrestrial noise like RLAN etc.
My Equipment:
35cm offset-dish
coffee-can feed
DB6NT preamp. 35dB gain, 0,8dB NF
AR5000
