Hi Enzo,
Yes the 1.2 Ghz uplink does work on the BBS. How many watts are at your antenna and what is the antenna gain?  I find that 30W at my 20+dB gain antenna is not enough unless the view is clear of any trees. 

I find the 1.2GHz uplink to be difficult on the BBS so keep trying!

Current logs show several users from around the world.  JA, VK, OZ, WA stations are some examples. 

There is no other bird to test with.

Hi Folks,
I am trying the bird on:
9k6 BBS and Telemetry.
Does it work?
With the MSPE I can just receive numbers like:
What does it mean?
I am trying to request the DIR on 1268.700 MHz, but I do not get any
I am asking because I would like to see if my system works.
Is there any other Bird that I can use the 1.2 GHz Band?
Thanks in advance.
