Hey George,

I heard ya on there.  As far as I'm concerned no worries, kind of hard to
troubleshoot issues relating to satellites without using the satellites!
FWIW your signal was loud and clear, no QRN on the transmit so it must be
on your receive or in the shack.

Hope you get it sorted,

73,

Matt - KM4ULB
