Re: AO40 Copy on 17 April



Andy,

FB on your Telemetry copy.  Yes, signals are getting better day by day. 
Can't wait to hear some SSB on it.  And hopefully we can have QSO in the
very near future.

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

My Equipment:
35cm offset-dish
coffee-can feed
DB6NT preamp. 35dB gain, 0,8dB NF
