AO-51 L band uplink connected



Worked AO-51 on the 16:15UTC pass in L/U on the BBS. Downloaded the
directory and two files through Wisp. The pass was at high elevation and
download efficiency was near 90%. Once the sat reached 30degree elevation,
connecting with the BB was possible. Did not see any other callsigns.

Equipment: TS2000X with 65 feet of LMR400 into two phased M2 23cmM22EZ
antennas. Used the 10 watt TX output. Will try again tonight.

Hope this helps to keep folks encouraged. It is working.

73, Stefan VE4NSA

Alcon

   Once I get the M2 L-band together I'll try it out using my IC910 with 
L-band module installed 10W output. We'll see what happens tonight.
