I will start compensating for that. I guess the real problem is I am 
doing with solo (well, I have someone to log). I found a tripod at home 
(I am on vacation, grid square EL85) but there was no room to pack it. 
With an Arrow in one hand and keying with the other, I tend to get shaky.

Audio was probably the doppler. It's odd; sometimes I can hear myself 
lightly, probably because my actual voice is covering up the downlink. 
Sometimes its just static. In any case, I am going to just have to be 
more careful of where I point my Arrow.

Thanks All,
