[amsat-bb] SO-50 Troubles

Good morning Ladies and Gent's.

Tried working SO-50 last night after a few successful contacts on AO-91,
and I was having a hard time hitting the bird. I am using a pair of HT's
(FT-60 on RX, VX-8 on TX), each connected to their respective elements of
my arrow antenna. TX tone was enabled, and I was hearing the bird just
fine, but couldn't seem to make it in. Did anyone by chance hear my call
sign? I know it's likely far to vague for anyone to give any real
suggestions, but I was a bit frustrated with my 2nd recent unsuccessful
attempt at working stations on SO-50.

Thank you.

Mike, AE0MT.
