..Thanks for the phone call Nelson..
I did manage to get a look at Jalwa ..sadly nowhere near the signal levels you get 70+ miles from me.
The best I managed was occasional lock at 4.8db (F15) ..
Mostly sound only ..but occasionally pictures.
I guess this bird really is fringe for me.
...A few 10s of miles makes all the difference.
Still it gave me a reason to turn on the sat gear..
I just need to get to the point where I feel like going outside to correct for recent wind damage...but that may be a little while off yet.
Cheers buddy

yes -- those few miles must make all the difference ,
just checked it again here - and although its down a bit from last night-
its still hitting 8.0 db , clear skies again today here - but still a cool breeze
