I have to agree with Patrick on this one. We also checked the frequencies up and down from the center of the passbands and there was little activity. Just spread out. It was wonderful to see that there was so much activity. As for the FM birds - it is what it is. One frequency with capture effect where two people are happy and the rest does not make it. We, deliberately stayed clear of the FM birds and focused on the ones with linear transponders. We were better prepared to work the Satellites than ever before. SatPC32, LVB Tracker, G5500, IC910 with Rig Control. Nature favors the prepared :-)
