I have TH-D72A HT connected to a ANLI AL-800 34" telescoping whip.
This morning there was an almost 90 degree pass over my grid square
(FN20rk). I get loads of packets but for the life of me I can't
beacon myself! :-(
I have my Decay Algorithm off, I have beaconing every 30 seconds (I
even manually beacon by pressing F+[Beacon] as per the Kenwood
manual). I have my beaconing in APRS format.
Is this just not gonna happen on a HT? I have tried 4 times with no
luck (all high elevation passes). Again I see every packet that flies
by (comparing my HT list with that on ariss.net). Very frustrating.
