AO-40 Telemetrie



tonight I tried to pick up some telemetrie from the bird.
I started at MA171 (59k km, 75deg squint). The signal was there but
to weak. Until MA197 (45k km, 64deg squint) I got 46 blocks, bad CRCC.
The first block was at MA 178. I stopped listening at 03:35 local ...

equipment:
- homebrew 19-turn Helix
- converter MKU24-Oscar by DB6NT (0.6db NF, 28db gain)
- 10m RG-213
- TS-2000
- AO40RCV v.1.22 by AE4JY

It seems to me that the pass loss is to high for this squint angles.
Maybee someone has equal experiences with the bird ????
