Experimenter's Wednesday success

AO-51 went into V SSB/ U FM voice repeat mode tonight for Experimenter's Wednesday. Signals were awesome to say the least. Stations heard or worked the first pass include KE4AZN, VE3NPC, KB2M, KE4MVG, KA8HQL, N6ORS, KB2YCC, and N5UXT. Sensitivity is great, with contacts possible on 5 watts to a medium sized beam from my QTH. One surprise is it appears the SQRX receiver is actually DSB, meaning LSB or USB -may- both work for the uplink. Your mileage may vary. If you liked the mode, send a note to ao51-modes@amsat.org and let the AO-51 Ops Group know...
