Special thanks to Steve NS3L, I was able to listen to AO-73 for a short
period of time (You were right, Steve, about the "drifting" on AO-73)
and was able to change the frequencies. This leads me to my next question:
All I am operating on is a 2 Meter / 70 CM ground plane (Which does not
do great at all except at low elevation.). Anyway, I still have my
Moxon's that I built when I was doing rover. They did alright, but
still, when the sat got to a certain elevation; I could not hear
anything. Here is the million dollar question: Will a "turnstile"
antenna for the sat's work better than the Moxon's?
