I also find it easier to hit this way. Also, I've seen the transponder do all 
kinds of strange things. I've heard it toggle on/off in relation to the 
beacon. I've heard no discernable downlink but a strong beacon and also the 
other way around. It keeps you on your toes. Polarity switching on the uplink 
makes a huge difference. For instance tonight I could barely hear my downlink 
with RHCP on the uplink.
