Is it just me or has something happened to the power level on AO-51 recently? Ever since Frank & Clayton (K4FEG & W5PFG) 'broke' it Monday evening on the 2130Z pass (just kidding guys), my receive audio has been 'scratchy' like I'm not getting enough signal into the receiver. Nothing has changed on my end and though I usually run mobile, I was sitting in a parking lot for that pass instead of driving down the road, I'm just curious if anything got changed during the reset.
AO-51 has been my favorite satellite since I got started doing them 2 1/2 years ago and I cringe every time she 'goes down' knowing that we may never hear from her again.
