Re: AO-40 Mode?



Ken, I was on between MA40 to MA50 last evening.  Could here several
stations and the beacon easily.  But not myself with a 70cm uplink at 50
watts.  U/S mode should have been active during this MA according to Mark
Hammond's schedule.  Doppler is about 10Khz during this time of the pass.  I
plan on checking power at the antenna this evening.  I have a 100 ft run of
RG213 and an Arrow ant which may not have enough gain with all of the loss
in the cable.

Ken, W5RPS
