Re: ao-51 not heard



Adding to earlier reports:

Just attempted the pass, out to the east of New Zealand.

Pass Midpoint: 08:08 Hrs UTC, 23rd Nov.

Az: Around 90 degrees. East of my location, and clear view of the sky.
Elev: Max of 18 degrees. I can normally work AO-51 down to 3 or 4 degrees to
my east.
Range: 2000 Km

Rig was Kenwood TS-2000, with transmit set to 50 W output.

Antenna is two yagis, of about 2.4 m boom.

Normally I can work AO-51 full-duplex, fully quieting, with only 5w
transmit.

Results of pass: *** NOTHING HEARD AT ALL ***

I hope it only needs a software reset and a kick or something.

Best regards to the AO-51 team.
