Re: 29 May 07 RAFT Eastern pass around 22:00 CDT



Nothing heard from RAFT in EM-66 either.  I listened a good 15 minutes prior to the lastest keps, and 15 minutes after.

Hi all

Neither Nick K5QXJ nor I heard any sound coming from RAFT during tonight's
pass around 22:00CDT.  I had my antenna in a fixed position, pointing
towards where RAFT was supposed to come from based on the latest
(07148.59248876) keps that I had.  I had my pre-amp on, the radio on
145.827MHz and the polarization of my 2m cross yagi set to what gave me the
best signal in the past listening to RAFT.  I believe that all was set
correctly at my station, but with the squelch wide open, I heard no sound
from RAFT.
