The new linear transponder is phantastic!!! I heard my voice at 1deg and during the whole pass the signals were loud and stable. Some moments of fading were very brief without affecting the contacts. At LOS (below 20 deg) I had some noise, but maybe this is a local effect. Switching from horizontal to vertical polarization did not had any affect on the signal strenght (only for uplink, I did not checked the downlink).
Thanks to F6HTJ, IW4DVZ, DK3WN, I6IBE, SP9TTX and PE0SAT for my first QSOs via the new bird.
Thanks to Alan and the Chinese team for this fabulus job.
Merry Christmas to all and my best wishes for a happy and fruitful new year.
