AO-7B continues to struggle along. This mornings
1005utc pass was no exception. No signals were heard
from Europe and I could not hear my downlink until the
satellite was over 15 degrees. Low power up on cw
produced key clicks in the downlink. Surprisingly, higher
power started to produce a tone along with the key clicks.
On voice the downlink was distorted with low power. Again,
higher power produced more audio and less distortion. I only
heard one station sending dah's but very weak. AO-7 seems
to have good passes and not so good passes. You just have
to keep trying and hope to find a good one.
