On the 1809 pass from AOS to TCA i start to copy at 12 deg but signal came much better as soon as the sat pass my latitude Signal became as
strong as before S9 but with deep slow fades. from TCA to LOS i was able to hear my downlink until 4 deg. West pass are much better here
than the east one where i was not able to get anything with a 10 deg max elevation.
I made 3 contacts KB2M W7LRD and WC7V and someone was sending a lot of carrier all along the pass??? there is no need to transmit to be
able to received S band as the transmitter is always on.
