Re: SO50

Last night I wrote:

I couldn't hear anything from SO-50 tonight, around 0425 UTC.

This morning I reply:

Daylight reveals that the coax cable to my UHF yagi snagged on a tripod 
bolt and caused the UHF yagi's elevation to be off by 40 degrees.  That 
explains why I couldn't hear SO50 and why I couldn't get into VO52.  A 
hacksaw took care of the offending bolts.
