This last pass up the west coast.  Very good strong  downlink, running a 910 @ 10W to a 16 turn RHCP helix through 40  feet of LMR400. Even good copy running 2 watts!  Rx 40 el cp yagi.  Early in the pass RHCP was better for rx, later and near LOS LHCP was better. Why?  Only station heard was VE7CNA and he was very weak, aside from that I could only talk to myself.  I know we have some L banders on the "left" coast and up there in KL7.   It's lonely.
