Thanks to the team involved, I am pleased to report successful operation of
SO-67 during the trial evening
pass over here in Europe today. (Saturday 8th January 2011 around 1935
Managed to work a number of stations in Europe using just my "ELK" antenna
and about 10 watts of RF.
I had good reports and could hear my own downlink quite well, but also had
to remember the operating
technique and the use of the tone for access.
Trust that things will be now OK for the return to normal operation next
week as planned.
PS. Also note AO -51 is also operating OK in this part of the world pleased
to report, with thanks also those
involved with its management.
