It's my fault - I worked AO-40 on opening day, it was fun signals were
strong. Before AO-40 quit working, it was unuseable due to RF polution here
in densely populated South Dakota. I pined for the good old days of AO-13
and mode B. So I guess the change was made for me.
The good news is you probably already have a mode B station. Remove the
heavy dish and delicate downconverter and replace it with a cheap,
lightweight and easy to homebrew yagi.
