Re: Survey: L and S minimums

Hi ED,

1. Meyers dish, Drake with minimum mods, home brew pre-amp, 75 ft of  RG-6.
I need to attenuate the signal about 10dB. more....

2. Cushcraft "Boomer" 42 EL, FT-736R with muTec kit. 25 watts. To match the
MB I would have had to put the amp in line.....May put the brick up for

I'm new to mode "S" but I find that it's easy.   I wish now I had gone to
mode S on AO-13......

I did noticed that sometimes the signals would fade a little. Was fun to
listen to guys looking for their downlink......

Chris, NN0V was my first contact at 09:57 UTC. 55,000km range.  Jerry, K5OE
was my last at 13:00 UTC, 32,700 km range...Just could not stay up any

It's been a long time coming and now after working AO-40 ....It's well worth
the wait....

73's,  Mike
