Even if the was a memo, nobody would heed it.
The FM birds are basically useless on Field Day. I only try them on a 
pass where most of the footprint is out over the Pacific.
We're up to 35 contacts on the linear birds so far, and we've shut down 
for the night.
I'll be back on early tomorrow as K6AA and try to make a few more contacts.
I really miss HO-68 this year. I can hear the beacon very well, but the 
transponders appear to be off.
Is the ISS running cross-band? Everytime it goes over, all I hear on the 
downlink is S-9+60 mexican music and mexican babble.
73, Jim
