Hello All


I am a novice
satellite operator. I have been completing my setup for satellites and recently I made
my first contact on AO- 51 with John K8YSE.


I wonder if is
possible for me use the AO-7 in mode B. I tried to hear it in different passes, but I
didn’t hear anything, neither the beacon.


I have seen when
the footprint of the satellite is over my locator, the eclipse is almost over my locator
too.  I think maybe the satellite is OFF or
maybe I don’t have the appropriate 10 m antenna for this purpose. I really
don’t know.


 Anybody help me please
