Re: RS-16

The following line is from the latest bulletin:

The 435 MHz beacon (only) is operational. Attempts to command the Mode A

transponder on have been unsuccessful.

Very unfortunate, since RS-12 is the only "Easy Sat" left that is truely

Wish we could afford another, but what to do???  I have severalfriends
taking interest in why I am often away from the repeater.
One is even listening for RS-12.  I doubt that they would spend
the needed funds for an AO-10 or P3D, station, at least not at first.
When RS-12 dies, I fear so will growth in satellite operations.
Just my opinion.
