That was my experience as well: SO-50 was easy to hear... until  
lately. For some reason, and I chalk it up to beginner's luck  
(perhaps), it is now sometimes more difficult to hear and often  
requires careful attention to antenna polarization. If I didn't know  
better I would say it was slowly spinning.

But, it is possible to work -- last night I spoke with KC0TOH on SO-50.

Keep trying!
