Well kept secret indeed!  I had been having trouble with my FO-29
uplink signal during FD at W8GK.  I went to Plan "B" and tried a SO-50
pass and BINGO .. worked a Radio Club in KS (W0MI).  It was a solid
contact with good signals both ways and we literally had the bird all
to ourselves.  Unbelievable for a FD weekend.  Thank you SO-50!!!
