The AO-73 satellite is one of my favorite .It has a phenomenal transmitter
and receiver.I checked the amount of drift a year ago and again this
It is exactly the same, 200 hz per 30 Seconds or 400 per min.I had been
correcting during a qso with the cat box open ,clicking away with my
mouse.I just discovered that the plus and minus buttons in my keyboard are
actually a XIT control ! I watch the clock in the upper right corner of
satpc32 and tap away.
I am able to stay right on during the entire pass. Hope this helps others.
I know some folks avoid this bird because until you figure this out it can
be tough to work.WB8RJY JEFF
