AO-07 Reception report

Hi All

AO-07 strong S-9 beacon Mode-B 145.972MHz.
11th July 2003 UTC 21:45 - 22:04
No contacts made but transponder signals strong and clear.
TX using FT-790II 20W to dual band roof mounted whip.
RX using FT-290II + home brew BF981 preamp on the same whip.
I have listened for AO-07 often and very pleased to actually talk
to myself via the mode-B transponder. Next time perhaps a contact.
These low orbit Mode-B sats are fun. Inverting transponders and all
that stuff we forget about these days.

Good DX, John ZL2TWS
