AO-40 Update, 2004-05-11




As the table below demonstrates, the "mystery effect" has taken A0-40 into 
highly unfavorable ALON.  Attempts at communication are likely to be futile 
until conditions improve in early and mid July.  Note that unfortunately 
optimum squint in late July corresponds with a very bad solar angle.
...stay tuned.
