RE: NO-45 (Sapphire) Operational?



Oh, okay...  

Well, now that I have your attention, how is my favorite digital bird doing
(NO-44)?  Is there a prediction of good sun in her future?

73s,

Sapphire is about 9 dB weaker than PCsat.
It would be amazing if you heard it on a mobile
antenna...  Usually takes a beam.

GOod luck
