Re: PSK 31 Trial



 Didn't have time to debug my u/l. I have developed a very load hum on my tx 
that wasn't there last time I tried this setup, over two year's ago, no time 
to mess with now as I'm packing for Dayton. I did copy K8TL and N5UXT on the 
15:10z pass, both had very good sig's.  I will debug my PSK-31 sat setup 
when I get back home in two weeks....
