Hi All,

So you know--you can copy the AO-7 telemetry beacon MUCH better with the "automatic beat cancel" feature of your spiffy radio turned OFF!


Ahaha...I couldn't for the life of me figure out why I couldn't print that thing...and it doesn't help with copying IO-26 or AO-16, either....

Anyhow, it's a nice signal.  Bird is to my EAST, heading from SOUTH to NORTH and seems much better on LHCP....

Using fldigi, custom RTTY settings:

85 carrier shift
45 baud rate
5 bits per character
None parity
1.5 Stop bits

And click REVERSE (the Rv button down to the bottom/right).  

You can turn on the logs and record the thing too...slick.
