RE:AO-40 VHF-uplink trial

 this morning at 07:06:11 U uplink switched to V uplink.

 First impression : passband was EMPTY...( minutes before more ten 12 stns ON)

 heard I8CVS and G3WDG both on L uplink.

 Found my signal after some very frustrating minutes

 Downlink 2401.361   at MA 120 is V uplink 145.885 MHz  U is 435.631 MHz.

 It seems that we are missing 6 to 10 dB as calcualated before.

 Using 50 Watts on 145 MHz with 6 ele linear polarized.
 G3WDG and I8CVS coukld copy my cw 529 SSB was readable at times.
 VE3NPC came up with 160 watts and 2x6 ele he was 55 on 2.4 GHz.
