A comment; Google will often dig up some good stuff, but, because the way
some amateurs title their personal web pages and use descriptive text, and
googlers select search phrases, not even Google can get all the neat stuff.
I'm sure some really fine setups don't even get published to the web.

If AO-51 will be running in L/S or U/S mode more often during its full sun
period, perhaps some of the replies to Drew could be copied to this list for
everyone to tweak their systems.

Once-upon-a-time, AO-51 had experimenter's Wednesday when those who were
building their own 2.4 and 1.2 patches, helix, etc had an opportunity,
within the next week or so, to test their construction skills.  I miss that,
but, with the second radio on AO-51 running less conventional modes on a
regular basis, we again have that opportunity.  For me, that means I might
be able to continue tweaking my setup and install a more permanent version
on the roof before the snow flies.

Subject: [amsat-bb] AO-40 portable stations

I'm trying to collect some data on the typical successful AO-40
portable-type station. What worked and what didn't work for a portable,
throw it in a suitcase type setup, or CC&R evading driveway or backyard
setups, either U/S or L/S. If you have any photos and/or descriptions of
your setup, please forward them direct to me at ko4ma at amsat.org , or point
me to a link if you have them on the web. Thanks in advance!
