RE: UO14 recently




It has happened before, and it will likely happen
again.  Sometimes the onboard software malfunctions
and the magnetorqueing that is necessary to completely
stabilize the gravity gradient lock goes awry. I would
ask UOSAT before anyone panics.

Subject: [amsat-bb] UO14 recently


In the past couple of days I am having a hard time
receiving UO14 really well.  Has anyone else noticed
this?  It gets alot of fades, and the solid signals
don't come in for real long periods of time.  I am
using a horizontal yagi with no elevation, but it has
worked well before.  I am also using a preamp in a RF
concepts UHF amp.  

Wonder if others have noticed a weaker signal or
greater fading in the past few days, or do I need to
check my antenna system out?  It may have been going
on longer than that, but I haven't been on UO14 in the
past few weeks because of the great 6 meter openings.
