Bill and all,
Joe is right. F2IL gave me a 569 report on AO-7 Mode B Thursday evening - and I was hand-holding my Elk on the second floor of my house, pointing it to the northeast at a spot on a windowless wall. When we worked, AO-7 was at roughly 3.5 degrees elevation here.
I wish I had decided to try these low-angle passes months ago!
73 to all,
Tim - N3TL
