The AO-7 pass just concluded here reached maximum elevation of 31 degrees 
to the wesf of my QTH (DM41lu), and the satellite was in Mode V/A (also 
called Mode A).  With about 100 watts EIRP my downlink signal was RST 589 but I 
had the passband to myself.  Nothing but me and the beacon, which was RST 

My V/A receiving system at this QTH is nothing elaborate, just a Ten-Tec 
Argonaut V radio and a Hy-Gain AV620 vertical antenna. 

AO-7 is likely to be in Mode V/A for much of SKN.  Hope to work you there.
