although squint angle is high I can copy the beacon all around the orbit. The
signal is mostly strong enough so that AO40Rcv tracks automatically, and I get
quite a high percentage of good CRCs.

I'm receiving with G3RUH dish and patch and DB6NT preampifier connected
directly to the patch and the DB6NT downconverter in the shack. See details
