AO-51 mode S report


Just tried a pass of AO-51 in mode S. Max elevation here in JM49 was 27 degrees, but
I was able to copy good signals for almost all the pass. The setup was K3TZ-like patch,
2400-144 downconverter (www.parabolic.se) and IC-R10 as receiver. I also tried to uplink
and complete a QSO but I wasn't able to hear while transmitting due to desense of
the receiver (probably in the IF path, due to similar frequencies). Does anybody
have hints to solve the desensing problem (other than using a different IF frequency).
Mode U/S would be the best for antenna size too :-)

Best 73
