Hi Clare

I try to dust off my former AO-40 L mode to give a try on the L/S mode. There is much more dust 
than i was expected and even the S-signal seems to be weaker than the V/S mode?

Any way you don't speak about the 2.4ghz infamous interference? Ottawa is not too far from here is 
it possible there is a connection with your results and the overall earth base TX/RX setup?

I have a clue but your insight can be of a greath help actually as you are an expert operator to a 
point to be able to be a satellite control station.

The medium is the message...The content is the audience...;)
