Well, I figured out why my AO-51 LS results were so poor...  My feed had 
fallen off its temporary mount, and was dangling by the coax below the 
preamp.  Tape gave way.  How embarrassing.  So, Don KD6IRE, that was an 
amazing, if not short, QSO we had...

Anyway, it's fixed now.  And AO-51 is no longer in mode LS.

Are there any other handy space-born S-band signals that I should try?  And, 
before you suggest the Sun, I already tried that...  Never had enough S/N, 
and still don't.
