Hi Peter.
I've sent you a private e-mail about the UK radar on 70cm, but I've just looked at the telemetry
for the last pass and it shows a lot of transponder activity over Europe.
It may be that the AGC was being suppressed by high power signals.

The satellite is coming over to the west in about 15 minutes, I'll have a look at the passband then. - It's usually much quieter after 23.00 UTC

Hi all,


I tried to work AO-73 this evening at 21:35 UTC from UK.


Normally with an overhead pass I have a very good signal to/from the
satellite - tonight, nothing.


This is not the first time I have seen this - anyone else seeing this?
