Same story here, Michael. Manual tuning is the only way I ever hear my
signal, but then only above about 30 degrees elevation. I don't have the
same troubles on FO-29, etc.  One problem I am in the process of fixing is
high loss feedlines. Since I am very cautious about using the recommended
low power, my EIRP is very low. But, the feedlines should be replaced soon
with LMR-400. I hope the other four Funcubes that are in the pipeline will
not be as peculiar as AO-73.
