Hi to everybody,

I (CO7WT) was active on the midday pass (~1720Z) yesterday...

I tried to make a contact but my RX radio is deaf.. it's a TK-860 
channelized commercial radio that shows reduced sensitivity on the ham 
band (I know that now...)

I was with an hombrew DK7ZB yagui of 6 elements and about 15dB of gain 
but copies the signal so weak... it was just a try to test the gear, 
Hector (CO6CBF) is guiding me about operation skills and told me that I 
was loud in the pass and let every one calling for me... for those ho 
heard me that time, please I'm sorry... this was only a test.

I will try to re-tune my commercial UHF radio for the ham band and will 
try the contact in the future... so wait for me, and you will get the 
FL11 grid...

73, CU on the birds from CO7WT.
