    Looking for Dick's (WB5B) signal now - will keep an eye peeled!

    Also, that is my 'pilot' signal just below the lower band edge.

    On the 'faster' object, is it possible we have had an encounter with our first LEO satellite?

    Here's a fairly normal trace with a right-fast Doppler ACS sig too

    hmmm... a very interesting idea. 100 miles up or so? - My little 4 el is purposely tilted up in elevation 30 or 40 degrees just so I could work the sats - so it might bounce a LEO as well.

    Here's the antenna pattern - has fairly good gain up at the elevations we would need:

    Wow! Got one with absolutely no ACS Doppler - just pure tropospheric enhancement!

    More "just tropo"; no ACS (or very, very little)

    Looks like fun guys! Keep it up.

    Back to seeing some ACS Doppler now.

    Last weekend we saw much weaker signals, it was raining throughout most of the morning
    and along the path between KD6RF and myself, making for a much more homogeneous
    (equally mixed) atmosphere yielding little in the way of tropospheric (refractive) ducting.

    Back to seeing lots of ACS Doppler!
