Folks--I'm new here on QRZ, pretty recently licensed Technician, new to sats. (I've tracked and listened to SO-50 maybe 6 or 7 times.) Hoping to get some help making successful contacts on SO-50, where it seems as crowded as the bar on a Friday night. I use a Yaesu Ft-70DR and an Elk log periodic antenna. Have been able to listen in just fine and once--just once!--I was able to break through the crowd somehow and be heard, as someone heard and repeated my call back to me, but the satellite went over the horizon before I could complete the contact. So I think I have settings all dialed for doppler and for tones. I just don't know how to be heard well enough, or often enough, to make some successful contacts. Last night, 03:30 Friday UTC, it sounded like there was one guy who was just racking up the contacts during the pass. Every time I tried to sneak in after they'd announced "QSO 73", he just got on the transponder again. Do I need more: A. Power? B. Patience? C. Timing, like try midnight passes only? Appreciate any help. Thanks!
