Hi all,
Just tried it and it works - but used a lot of power
on the L band uplink.

Power at antennas approximately 15 W PEP

Antennas are 2 19 turn helix types

Downlink the usual BBQ Grill dish 60 by 90 cm linear polarisation

Had to change the frequency in the SatPC32 doppler file
1321 Hz up. I am using USB on the uplink.

Now it is:

AO-51,2401198,1268701.321,FM,USB,Nor,2256000,0,Voice L/S

Heard one or two other stations trying to get on frequency.
