Very Interesting!

I will send a note to Michael. We're seeing a change in telemetry on the K 
Band TX. Also I, (N1JEZ) see a change in received downlink signal strength 
from my previous qso's last year. I also know that Charlie, G3WDG and Viktor, 
OE1VKW also see changes.

I wonder what dates Michael is using to compare K Band performance? I'm not 
sure when the telemetry changed, but I know it was sometime after May 7, 2002 
when I had a great QSO with G3WDG. At that time signals were S3+ or so. Now I 
see perhaps an S1 on peaks.
