Re: The Eagle has died.



Hello
For me AO-40 was an "easy sat".  A 30 inch primestar, helix feed, and a 3731 d/c.  Only an occasional "click" from whatever.  If we are looking at the sky with a dish, how does the higher noise floor and qrm from the ground affect our reception.  I admit I am not quite understanding something.
