This is a capture of FO-29 last night that shows the carriers on and around 
the 145.920 uplink. There may be some low level modulation on some of them. 
My guess is they are some of the same long distance phones that were 
plaguing AO-27 and SO-50 a few years ago. Observations from myself and 
others indicate they go LOS about the time the edge of the footprint crosses 
the mid Atlantic states. Notice the Doppler curve is different between the 
three on the right.

Meanwhile, we plan to temporarily move the AO-51 main uplink to 145.88, our 
normal 2nd channel uplink. We'll post a message to the -bb as soon as the 
change is made.
