Re: Frequency jumps on SO-50

Hi Ib,

It's been pretty stable here on the West US Coast lately but I've heard 
exactly this before.  I contacted someone about it and it's presumed its a 
low battery voltage situation.  It could be because SO-50 is in Eclipse 
when Denmark is in the footprint.  I seem to recall it was in eclipse when 
it was happening here too.
