Hello all,

I am having a difficult time getting into AO-85. The equipment I am using
is a Kenwood TH-F6A and an Arrow antenna. I have the PL tone set and am
adjusting for Doppler on the transmit side. The first 4 passes I have tried
have been 50 deg. or more over the horizon with one being 89 and still
can't get in. I can hear it very clear on the passes I have tried. Is there
anything I am missing? I have successfully made a contact on SO-50 but
AO-85 cannot hear me for whatever reason. I am a new ham  and very new to
satellites. Thanks for you help.
