Re: Echo and SO-50



Another reason one might not hear SO-50 Emily is that it may not have been
turned on by a ground station. SO-50 is the only satellite that I know of
that has to be commanded on to be heard. other reasons one may not hear it,
is that it goes from right to left hand, most of the time it seems to be in
left LHCP at my station.

the old saying "if you cant hear it, you cant work it" dont always aply to
SO-50 but should for the other satellites.

but if you cant hear SO-50 then one should assume that it is in the wrong
polarity for your own station to hear or it has not been turned on by a
ground station.

| George,

| coming over the top of other stations.
|
| Please listen for other stations first and don't transmit unless you hear

do

| them specifically and I'm certain they will hear you.
