Re: AO-40 Update, 2003-08-10

Can anyone confirm K band reception from MA 124 to 134? I am debugging 
my system and thought I should ensure that it was really operational 
before pulling my system apart to see what the issue is....

Also, for those of you with K-band setups, can you tell me what sun 
noise measurements you have made (and with what size dish) - just 
curious what expectations I should have?
