Re: Fw: Historical Day for AO-40 !!!



I saw a note the Leila was turned on but when I was observing the SSTV
action, Leila seemed to have no effect. SSTV signals were at least two to
three "S" units above the beacon and broader than other voice signals
observed. Perhaps this was done to give Leila a signal that needed
attenuation?
