Re: AO-51 2nd repeater operational



435.300 downlink? I thought it was 435.150.

Thanks for the reply. I've heard ISS just fine with the same setup,  
but I see that AO-51 is a bit over twice as high. I'll try open  
squelch next time and Doppler tuning on rx. I don't understand,  
however, why I didn't hear myself on the nominal 435.150 at peak of  
pass, unless rx is actually 435.300. I have the W-32 set for Full  
Duplex, so receive mute wasn't active.
