I just worked a pass on AO-16. Heck yeah it was early. But having the bird all to myself at 5:45 in the morning means I get to test my antennas without stepping on anyone else. I did work N8OQ but it wasn't easy. And I'm not really sure which antenna I was using because they aren't labelled. That's going to be something on today's to-do list.
Anyway, on whatever I'm using now, I was able to hear the bird much further to the south than I was to the north. I was still inside the footprint when I lost it so I'm not happy with it quite yet.
Things to do today:
- Figure out which coax goes to which antenna.
- Measure for new coax.
- Account for the rotators and get them cleaned up.
- Buy rotator cable.
- Work AO-51 passes.
