Nothing like that but I did get wiped out on an AO-51 pass by strange up and
down oscillations on receive. I couldn't hear a thing over it. I later found
out it was an AWAC plane flying down the coast.... Really weird. 73, Don

I swear I just heard some strange talking on the bird and something that
sounded like a submarine pinging underwater. I thought I had Hunt for Red
October on the boob tube or somethin. I heard myself on the downlink clear
as day, really strong signal. I double checked my freqs and well there is no
mistaking hearing yourself talk on the downlink of a satellite.
Usually somebody is on these passes, but I got no response from several
calls. Anyone ever experience anything like this? No I was not drinking or
on anything.
