First try at S mode this month.  Worked KC9ELU and KC8ZFN who was using a hand held patch antenna!!  Noticed some very deep fades.  Rx here is 3 foot primestar dish with 3731aa downconverter.  On S mode on AO 51 we can actually have a conversation!

145.88 up, 2401.200 down. I'd appreciate daily reports about the S band 
transmitter, either emailed or posted to http://oscar.dcarr.org/
