I am very impressed by ISCAT-A for aircraft reflection compared to JT65C at 2300MHz.
Generally, if you hear the reflection burst, you can expect to have a decode. When ISCAT-A reports below about -20dB decodes are less reliable, although more testing is required. In a large number of decoded frames the number of erroneous decodes was seen to be less than a dozen or so over a three hour period.
I am now turning my attention to enabling the PA switching to work with the preamplifier box so I can try a two-way QSO on the new band. You need to be very careful with sequencing when switching 250W at 2.3GHz on a single coaxial cable with connection to a very low noise preamp!
