Hi Miles,

That may apply in the US, but here in VK/ZL the nearest repeater input
is 30KHz away at 146.025! Yet we have the same problems that you guys
have up north. One frame digi'd per pass with 20w into a slimjim 15ft
above dirt is considered good, if I use the 8el Yagi I might get two or
three per pass. I reckon that the explanation regarding a short TXDelay
on ISS, may be the answer. Many of us dont hear, or see, our own frames
digi'd, but others do.
