Re: Need Manual of 432 Microwave Transverter

I am getting the vague, and hopefully inaccurate view, that things are not well
in the Amateur Satallite community. It's seems as though only a few people know
what is going on, and they arn't talking. It looks to me like openness and
accurate communication is what's needed here. (Hey !!! we're about HAM radio)
Part of the joy of the birds is knowing what the controllers are doing and why
they are doing it. This is info that seems to be very invisable.

We got the internet now folks!!! When the controllers make changes they should
publish how and why they they made them. It can be short .. so it shouldn't take
much time.

Enough of my 2 cents worth.
