After not being able to get into AO73 last night I today reloaded my keps.

I noticed that AO73 had a newer element set then I had before.

As a result tonight I did get into AO73 and worked KC9ELU and K8YSE.

I did have to retune my transmit every time I started talking.

This is something I usually don't have to do on other satellites.

So hopefully as the keps improve, so will the accuracy of the tracking programs.

Only time will tell.

I was impressed with the strong signals considering it was in the low power mode.
