[amsat-bb] I found the twist on SO-67

On my last 8 degrees morning pass i was able to sustain about 4 differents QSO in a row (back to back) It is not an issue on the 
transponder probably a new way to avoid pile up? I will have to make further test but the twist is related to over deviation and trailing 
tail handling if it's confirm the twist is nasty... and can be only defeated by strict rules of engagement that i strongly doubt it can be 
achieved anytime soon on a one channel fm satellite.

Signal reach S9 plus 30 here at 8 degrees and  i missed an overhead 83 degrees pass prior to this one :( With ISS it's probably the 
strongest signal received here.

It will be nice folk's from Sumbandalia to explain exactly how the TR switching is working. In the mean time congratulations for this very 
powerful sat.
