Not a good day Saturday.  Joey was launched from Cambridge  (50 bd 300 shift 8 n2) and initially all looked good, but the frequency kept climbing from the clear spot up in amongst some terrible interference. Murphy's law, a nice big sprog right in the spot Joey wanted to settle on.  As you see from the screenshot I tried to notch out the worst of it, and Joey did just appear  amongst all that.

The signal just did not come in strong enough for some reason to get a green decode, despite my being comfortably inside the green footprint.  I even upped the IF gain to 40 db on the dongle, but still couldn't cut a decode.  Oh well, Looks like a busy day today. 3 flights in the offing it seems.
