Got my first QSO on this very strong SAT. Signal is at least 3 S units more here than than the average pass of other birds. Very excited about working it.
But the audio on it did sound very "fuzzy" to me. Not the usual crisp clear FM I hear on AO-27, SO-50, and AO-51 when tuned in to center.
I tried FM and FM narrow on my FT-857 and tried fine tuning with the VFO but it didn't seem to help. Is this the nature of this bird or am I missing something I need to change on my settings?
