I will keep trying. I really need to get another Radio to work it full
duplex so I guess I can get something with a little more power for
transmit. Really strange since I just work SO-50 this morning at a 17
degree pass but cannot work AO-85 at a 89 degree pass. BTW my I just got my
vanity call this morning. I am now W6ZAR.
