Would be grateful for any advice or your thoughts on the following...!
Ok, so I have my station virtually completed now. I have the rotator
and with the LVB Tracker interface unit and SatPC32 now tracking SATs
correctly (it appears).
I have a 4 ELE (2M) and 9 ELE (70cm) on the rotator.
I can receive very good copy of downlinks from quite low passes on both
2M & 70CM,
and I have recently had the FT-847 lab repaired and tested on output -
which I know are
The problem I have is - whichever satellite i try to work, low pass /
high pass, SSB or FM, high power
or low power - I am unable to hear my own signal on the downlink and
hence so far have no QSO's
....Any suggestions or clues as to what I may be doing wrong or have
Would appreciate any clues / tips here ! :-)
