Well, it was fun (and sometimes equally frustrating) while it lasted but
it didn't last long enough.
Had a good overhead pass of FO-29 tonight, but once that thing gets down
below 40 degrees pointing toward the U.S. the noise gets to be a real
PITA. I had on my best ears and some DSP but still couldn't get enough
out of the buzzing and whistling to make a complete contact with but two
stations. I hate that!
Special thanks to Hector CO6CBF who was always on to let me test my
doppler and get a signal report before the bird was AOS over the U.S.
So it goes. I guess it will be a year before I get down here again, so
I have some time and experience to put to use to see how I can make it
Thanks to all who called, you made my days, just sorry I couldn't make
all of yours.
