Re: FD Birds?

5 watts with an Arrow?  Probably your only chance for success would be AO-51 or SO-50 in the middle of the night.  AO-27 is only available on daylight passes, and the competition for ALL of the FM birds will be fierce.  Someone from the ARRL, who shall remain nameless, is actually recommending as much uplink power as possible to improve one's chances, so that pretty much guarantees a mess on FM..................
