Hi All,

At 19:40UTC today I tried the mode LU pass on AO-51 over europe. At first I couldn't hear my SSB
uplink signal on the downlink so I switched to CW. That worked. I noticed that the audio level on
the downlink was very low. My 23cm signal level at the satellite must be good because mode LS is
working OK.

Heard my CW signal on the downlink from 4 degrees el AOS to 3 degrees el at LOS. Hrd also one
other station trying with CW dits/dots and heavy 23cm radar signals.

Uplink: IC-910 10W and 26el yagi
Downlink: IC-910 2x16el Yagi
