[amsat-bb] UKUBE-1 Signal

The satellite's primary beacon causes many signals to disappear on the 
transponder when it is active. If you adjust your power, you can 
sometimes overcome it. :-) When the primary satellite beacon stops, the 
transponder will resume normal performance.

It is fun to play a game and see when it catches you. Sometimes you get 
caught in the middle of QSO or calling CQ.

I enjoy working UKube-1 because it is very strong. It is getting a fair 
amount of users over the USA.
