AO-7 was sounding very healthy in Mode B on the pass that just
concluded over North America. The beacon was in CW mode and producing
strong clean tones without a hint of FMing. Most signals sounded good
in the passband. For much of the pass, I was running 500 mW into my
Arrow for about 4 watts ERP and getting return signals of S4-S6.
Always nice to have a pass where AO-7 sounds as good as that. There
was not much activity, though. I only heard KC4LE, AF5CC, and WI9I.
