AO-7 is a special bird. Did you check when you tried to work it which mode it was in? I tried several times to 
get it while it was in mode A (10m down/2m up) but never received the beacon or any signal with either a 
vertical, a beam or a wire. AO-7 is only in mode B every other day. A much easier linear bird to test with would
probably be VO-52. All the frequencies are on the AMSAT page. VO-52 right now uses the Indian transponder.
Let me know if you want to try today on VO-52 in the afternoon.

My little Werker batteries seem to be holding up great and will be testing Solar input/radio draw today. Is there something like more points for solar/portable stations? Or is that only for contests or somethin?
