Re: [amsat-bb sarex] UO-22, ISS satgate, etc

 I was having a bad weekend on the SIG. First I said 'call substitution',
when I meant 'call insertion', also I noticed that I was QRMing my ISS
satgate -4 with packet's from my test mobile -3. Well, after the 160m
contest, as thing's were getting back to normal here, I noticed I had a
very weak sig on FO-20. I discovered that after I worked a few station's
on AO-40 Sat morning I had, after removing the Drake coax feed,
mistakenly placed a 30m dipole feed onto the 2m input of my 847! Easy to
do here as I have 18 antennas. This dipole was cut for 10.151.5, it
worked out to an SWR of about 2.2-1 on 2m with my MFJ! So there also is
nothing wrong with the d/l on UO-22's 145.975 frequency. I was actually
getting into the pacsats KO-25 included, to get DIR up to date! The
dipole uplink was the also the problem I was having with QRMing the -4
satgate. Hey, could of been worse, I could have forgetten to remove the
Drake feed.
 I promise not to put my foot in my mouth again, and Jerry & Bruce, 
maybe it's better if I run unattended!
