Much better sounding signals tonight Doug & Gary.
AA5PK, KC4ZLB, N5UXT and N4QWF all sounding good.

Sounds like you may have heard me on AO-51 yesterday- kc2pcr
"  Strong unintelligible signals for the most part" could have been me tx  in
USB because that's what it sounded like coming back to me too, then  I
switched to try LSB and BAMM! I was in there pretty solid & fairly  clear,
but it was late in the pass so I couldn't hold it for only a moment  or two.
I didn't hear anyone else in there however Dave KB2MPU helped me  get my
TS-520 with 2m tv-502 transverter dialed in prior to the pass was  also on
freq listening and he told me afterwards he copied a few stations  calling. 
LSB seemed to repeat clear verses USB which came back to me  garbled. 
Take care & 73 doug kc2pcr

What did  I get wrong? Strong unintelligible signals for the most part except
toward  the end from KC2BR. Wrong sideband? Help.
