Transponder looks cleaner than the other XW sats, no beats or pulse signals noticed so far. QSOs on CAS 4A and CAS 4B this afternoon with PU2RAS, LU2DPW and LU2FGL.

I was able to hear my voice through CAS-4A and 4B transponders tonight
under one degree of elevation using ~5 watts into 10' of LMR-240uf and
a 4 element 70cm / 2 element 2m "Short Arrow" yagi. Very easy
satellite to work with minimal power.
