uo-14 congestion

as everyone thought, uo-14 was totally useless for its first pass this evening 
of field day 2001. i recorded it and you can hear one or two extremely strong 
stations that never made a single contact but tended to give their call 
repeatedly. i suspect the morning pass of ao-27 will be even worse as its 
transmiter is not as strong as uo-14 and most people at field day sites will not 
even hear it.


if you had not thought of fo-20/29, rs-12, ao-10, then that will be where you 
need to be moving for next year.
