[amsat-bb] Mode A tough for me

This last AO-7 Mode A pass at 1412utc wasnt too successful for me. Heard a couple of weak CW signals and I think Glenn AA5PK answered my CQ, but heard him for just a second, when the bird was off the tip of Baja, and that was it. I could just barely hear my own signal coming back to me. My G5RV antenna isnt the best for 10 meters, and that isnt saying too much either. When the weather gets better, I will make up a wire turnstile dipole of sorts and see how that hears.
