I had one contact with VK2DAG only enough to swap callsigns but the signal my end was consistently 20db 0ver S9 and could get into the bird with about 6 watts from an IC-910. I am using my AO-40 dish which is a 1.8Metre mesh dish with a L/S patch feed and controlled by Uni_trac.

On most passes that I tried I could hear my own signal coming down from AO-51 which was most of the time at S9 with a very slow and deep fade. I was please to be able to check how it was working after it had been unsed since AO-40 ceased operation.

Thanks Echo schedule team for chance to blow the cobwebs out of the equipment and looking forward to the day when P3E and Eagle is up there.

Regards Reg VK2RW
