Re: Home Brew Satellite Equipment Picture Album

Well, I got lots of positive comments and encouragement, but the "donors" 
were a little scarce.  Here is a (very small) start for the web page:


What I need to make this successful are YOUR pictures.  Please don't be shy.  
Share your project with the world!  Send me a note describing your invention, 
modification, or reconstruction.  All the bandwidth lately about Yaesu 5400 
mods would be a great item.  How about mobile mounts for your 
AO-27/SO-35/Stensat antennae?  How about that monster 12x12 2 meter beam for 
AO-10 or the tiny S-band patch antenna you have developed?  Amplifiers, 
transporters, etc.?

Please reply direct to:  k5oe@amsat.org
