Re: FM satellites (was: Re: SUNSAT OVER EUROPE)

The only way to benefit from more analog FM satellites in orbit would be to put
them up in formation.  Otherwise there will just be more passes for the same
people to hog.  If we can't get another P3 bird up there then let's put the
effort into FO-20/29 type equipment.

I used to do demos (mostly receiving, but some contacts) on AO-21 and AO-27.  I
don't any more.  They sound too much like a repeater jammers convention... a
very poor demonstration of amateur radio operation.

My $0.02 worth.
