I sometime logged my QSO live between radio/rotor/doppler adjustment and i cannot say my Lux LOG first version was 100% error free but i
have to correct them when the card arrive as i can filter all VK'S and sorted them.
AO-40 was a wonder full experience with U/S and L/S mode i was just making my first L/S QSO the day before he goes silent signal was
extremely strong as i used a 7.5' dish with a L patch feed for the uplink on L band. and a 2.4GHZ patch feed on the same dish my web site
still show this antenna cannot convince myself to scrap them :(
For the record a rumour float around me and two other EU stations a DL and an i that we where involved in the satellite issues as we where
using too much power and LEILA was not operating on the L uplink the day before AO-40 goes silent!!! if i remember correctly...
It was proven wrong afterwards as it was related to the batteries only.
