Thanks Dave. I will increase power until I start to see my trace. I was 
just following Bob's advice to limit power to 25 watts.

Relative to the SatPC32/HRD SatTrack AOS time discrepancy, which one do 
you consider most accurate? It makes a difference. I am using an Arrow 
antenna on a G5500 rotator for the UHF downlink. If you are just 8 
minutes off, the Arrow is pointing about 90 degrees off. I have 
considered turning off the automated antenna steering and point it 
manually with the buttons on the front of the rotator controller. But 
you must know which prediction is correct or you will be pointing the 
antenna all over the place trying to find where the signal is strongest.

Also, are the BRICSAT TLEs now giving us accurate AOS times or is the 
satellite still several minutes behind where the TLEs say it should be?
