I notice, looking at the logbook on the AO-7 website that the Europeans utilize 
Mode A alot more than use here in NA.  Since the downlink frequency is in the 
upper 10 meter band, and I wondering what antenna they are using for receive?  I 
have tried dipoles, horizontal loops, G5RV, etc to pretty much zero luck in 
hearing the bird, even with close passes.

Any info would be appreciated..
