Re: ao-40



Bruce,

     This is a matter of some debate.  If I move my uplink I won't interfere
with any one frequency very long, and I will eventually wind up on the open
spot I am listening to.  If I keep my uplink on the same frequency I may
hammer a QSO or the beacon for an extended period of time, or even worse I
may never hear my self because I am under a stronger signal..  Which is
better?

73,
Joe
