AO-7 observation

Hello all
>From my QTH CN87wk (near Seattle Wa.), once in awhile I have a good link into N. Europe.  The only one available is Mika OH8MBN.  Check your tracking computer, I'm sure there are other gents over there willing to try to stretch the footprint.  Another observation- I noticed there is a significant difference in downlink signal strength between 145.950 and 145.958.  Where .958 is  stronger.  Just curious, why?  Also can we use 145.958 +/- a little for designated DX (footprint stretching).  I have tried to push this before, with no bites.  With time short, a designated frequency would eliminate one variable.  See you on AO-7!
