Tripping LEILA is a variable occasion, depending on both Satellite Height
(Distance) and Squint angle.
Last nite, while having a QSO with Roy - VE7BPB, I have to reduce my power
to the minimal (2 watt) not to upset LEILA.
But on another occasion, even at the fullest 50 watt, I can barely heard my
echo (especially when the Sat on Apogee with bad Squint > 35).
I am using a W0LMD 435Mhz Patch on my 12 feet dish, with about 60 feet 9913.
