Hi Mike,
yes also for me it wasn't possible,up to now,
to work DO-64 satellite with quite good signal.

This is not "easy satellite"
Only some time (random)I received quite good signal
from transponder, often I received only a very weak
signal like you.

All this with long beam 22 elements cross yagi for 2 meters,
And 38 elements cross yagi for 70 cm. both rhcp-lhcp
Switch polarization.

Is anyone getting strong signals through DO-64's transponder?
I was able to only hear myself very weak for a short period of time on this
morning's pass.
DO-64 must not be positioned properly at this time.
