Hello satfolks;

When i listen to the recording of the activity (12:35z) over Europe of HO68 I
hear my calling is shortly interupted just that long of a packet. So I think the
input of the transmitter is muted every time a carry is detected. If many try to
send packets to the sat normal voice communication is impossible. 
So my conclussion is: packet and voice mode at the same time is not a good way.
Maybe that was the problem of the firsth FM-activity over Europe.
Many where trying to work the sat in packet and the input was most of the time
muted. Only big gunns could get thru the packets.

Merry Christmas.
