No, I'm not having a midlife crisis.
I finally got my antennas set up for satellite work and have been having fun the past few days. I can hear the birds great and have made a handfull of QSOs on both linear and FM satellites. What I could use help with though is hints and tips for syncing up my signal on the linear satellites. I am using a TS-2000 and SatPC32. Currently, I'm just intermittently saying 'test' while using the keyboard + and - keys to move my signal up and down while listening to hear myself. I've had moderate luck, but it's been simply a matter of trail and error as my correction factor has been +/- 3000 to get to where I hear myself, and I never seem to sound like a normal signal when I do finally hear myself. It's like I can never get it fine tuned, though I'm getting good reports. I just want to see if there's a better way to locate my signal.
