I just worked David on HO-68's transponder. I was portable at Green Key, 
FL, a small island/point right on the Gulf of Mexico. HO-68 has an 
amazing transponder. I started hearing signals at 0.3 degrees, and we 
made our QSO at about 2 degrees on my end. My equipment was a FT-857 
into a 5/8 wave vertical up, and the UHF half of an Arrow, ARR preamp, 
and 817 down, all tuned by hand. David, sorry about the feedback, I 
forgot my headphones. Thanks for the new grid!
