One more update:

I tried pass #744, this morning and copied a big round-table of 
several west-coast stations, but was unable to break in.  My downlink 
was as loud as them, so...?  I had one call to my CQ right at LOS and 
could not complete, sorry!  Bear with me as I am getting reaquainted 
with running my radio on satellites ;-)  My sub-VFO tuning control is 
not working which complicates netting with another station.  So I 
find my signal with the Rx and then engage tracking.  That tracks for 
a little while.

The interesting thing is that I copied signals to zero-elevation.  I 
would say that I am pleased with the new antennas.

Question: what ERP are most stations using on SSB on HO-68?  I am 
running 50w ERP.
