Great AO-40 condx for NA tonite



NOVA sez to me
MA 140
16-May-2001 0730Z (that would be 12:30am on May 16th here in AZ)
range>60,000km
squint=1.2 degrees (to PHX at least, shouldn't be much different in NA with
that range!)
NA/SA/West+Cent EU/West AF in view

An *excellent* RX system test with such a low squint!  If you can spare the
sleep, see whatcha really got!  (And let us know)
