Re: ao-40 u band uplink probs :/

just noticed on the telem.

rudak is on, yet the passband is still up.
from what ive read, rudak and the passband dont get on too well.

oh yes, and the battery charger seems to be off... :P

wonder if any of them are causing it.

just been up the mast to see if anything is wrong up there, and it looks
clear (thank god i live in a bungalow and its 10-15 ft off the ground :).

Speak to you later.
