Lee, I could not agree more, I'm trying to find out which net he was 
referring to...I've been ramrodding this effort, and have made most of 
them.  We get a rare Leila break on those uplinking 435, but that seems to 
happen when the agc is bouncing all over the place, and I've never been 
able to figure out how I can reduce my power on 435 rapidly enough to 
adjust my uplink...Is there a way?....Partly the reason I'm on 1.2 up 99% 
of the time!

Any Leila break I've observed when I've been on, net or otherwise, happens 
when the agc is bouncing...
