One other question:  Does the signal go away when you move your antennas
away from the bird?  I have had several tones that appear in that same area
of the band and sound just like AO-10s beacon.  But when I move my antennas,
nothing changes with the tone.  And is the tone gone when AO-10 is out of

OK, that was two questions. :-)

If the answer to both is yes, then you probably heard our old friend.
