No-84 is a unique bird.
If everyone is listening you will hear NOTHING on the FM downlink.
For the downlink transmitter to come on it must hear the 10 Meter PSK-31
Once it hears them then the transmitter comes on. Once the tones are
gone there is like 10 second hang time like a regular FM repeater then
the transmitter shuts down.
To hear anything someone HAS to be transmitting.
as far as bad timing, just keep listening the passes slowly rotate timewise.
