AO-51 PBBS was on last evening; however, seemed to be hard to work. On a 45 
degree pass I was receiving about half of the signal level that I normally 
receive from AO-51 and I was unable to connect using L band and 10 watts (22 
element M2 yagi). Normally AO-51 is full scale on S-Meter when above 20-30 
degrees. I have polarity switching capability and seemed to be LHCP instead 
of the normal RHCP. Maybe one of my feedline cables got caught on something 
and my yagis are pointing in the wrong direction. This has happenned to me 
before :-)
