This morning, Glenn AA5PK, and I had a QSO via the experimental
transponder activated on LilacSat-2.  It was very interesting and fun.
A non-inverting mode J transponder was new to me.

Using manual tuning to adjust for Doppler shift proved to be a small
challenge as I am more accustomed to operating on a transponder like
FO-29.  Running SDR in parallel to my Icom IC-9100 gave me a good
visual representation of the transponder pass band.
