Check out http://moredbs.atl.calpoly.edu/satellites/CP6/passes/2875. Six
packets downloaded on one pass with new settings in IC-910.  This was an
attended pass with fine tuning the signal manually using the CW beacon as a
guide. The best automated pass so far was three packets decoded. TLE in
online primer located at http://www.gatorradio.org/CP6_tutorial.pdf gave
reception from horizon to horizon and packet decoding (adequate signal
strength) above 9 degrees. 


My home ground station is based on the same equipment as W4DFU at the
University of Florida Club station.  Students will join me there tomorrow to
do the same, then set-up for the newly launched cubesats.  UF swampsat is
under construction.  See www.gatorradio.org <http://www.gatorradio.org/>
for club info.
