Hi Clive,

I've listened for half a dozen passes over the last week or so, but 
have been hesitant to report...I've made some changes here, and 
really haven't "peaked" it all up, so it could be my gear??

I've made a number of low orbit bird contacts recently so I guess I'm 
back to battery...

I've got my calendar marked for 5 AUG, and will start some checks 
again at that time...

If anyone reports before that on here, I'll also try a few...

               Pulling for P3E...
