Did you transmit the ON tone? SO-50 is set up so you have to turn it on by
transmitting on 145.85 with a PL of 74.4 hz for 2 seconds. This turns it on
for 10 minutes (if I recall correctly). Once it's on you transmit on 145.850
with a 67.0hz PL.

of the Oscar status website reveals that it was active a couple hours ago.
Did anyone else hear it during the latest pass? I finally got setup to
start recording the birds with my computer and was going to use SO-50 as a
