FO-29 problems ???



I got on FO-29 for the first time in several years and noticed that the
signals are about 10 db down from acouple years ago. Can barely hear
myself on downlink with 50 watts !!!! Has this satellite degraded in
output power since then ????

FO-20 and UO-14 much better since then.
