Re: Receiving AO-40 on S-band, finally



Glad that you're having a good time with the Millicom unit Maggie. I
haven't had a lot of feedback on the Millicom's, I was wondering how
everyone liked them so far. 

Incidently, I still have a few Millicom's and about 10 Drakes left over.
Also have a ton of power supplies if anyone wants them. 

Last, but not least... I was able to put my hands on a small quantity of
California Amplifier Downconverters (#31732) if anyone want's a nice
little conversion project. Ward Hall - WC0Y did a nice web page
http://communities.msn.com/wc0y&naventryid=114 to show how easy it is to
tune the CalAmp with a little PTFE tape (provided with each unit). Ward
has been proving that the Drakes are not the only game in town! (thanks
Ward) 

Great to hear about the telemetry Maggie!

73,

Mark - N0NSV
