Re: AO-51 PBBS OPEN !



Hi Jeff,

I was on a couple of passes last night and one this morning.

The U band output power is quite good and I had no problem receiving.

TXA (digital) at 420 mW and TXB (analog) at 550 mW

The L-Band uplink is more difficult, seems to require a little more power 
and very good uplink Doppler correction.

Gould, WA4SXM
