Why the digitalker mode?  It's the biggest waste of a satellite resource.
And also, why doesn't the JARL or whomever, ever put the bird into 9600 baud
packet?  It would be much faster.

I can understand putting it into digitalker for a week or so, but a WHOLE
MONTH??

Who can we contact at JARL to voice protest?

What use is that to the amateur community?
