Hi Jeff,

Many thanks for the report...actually the same radio but as we are sharing 
the platform with another radio system we "only" have 1/4 wave monopole 
antennas rather than the full dipoles that we have on FC1.

The actual effects of this difference in practise may be interesting to

I found the receiver to be more stable than ao73 but I also found the
downlink to be much weaker than I thought it should be since it supposed to
be the same radio as in the ao73.another good pass about midnight tonight
to try it out
