Yes, Scott, a lot of us out here are experiencing the same thing.  The pointing
angle problem I understand, but in the last several days signals will drop down
into the noise, suddenly, for varying periods of time.

We had a group on the other nite, and all were experiencing the same phenomena.
The beacon remains very strong (I monitor on another receiver) at the same 
RUDAK sig strength remains the same, very, very strong anytime I've listened.

Anyone else explain it??
