Re: V-band uplink vs. U-band uplink on AO40

Or one or more elements of the three folded dipoles of the 2m antenna is broken..

Or there is a problem with the antenna relay and that's another reason
why the 2m downlink is dead?

Just speculation indeed, perhaps measuring the antenna pattern
give us more insight?
