Got on FO29 today after one of our gentle desert breeze wind storms.
Signals were way down as was my downlink. Finally worked Brent, VE5SWL, on
CW but it was a chore. Checked all the cables, rf seems to be going in the
right directions.Checked CAS-4B pass, same thing. Put the array flat and
dead South. Went outside and checked, dead flat but pointing due East. I
guess gain and side rejection is a real thing! ;>)
