Re: P3D information



Come on guys!  You make it sound like only an AO-10-class station will be able to access the bird.  The satellite isn't always at apogee.  It's perigee passes will be at least as long as a typical LEO's duration and the link margin predictions easily indicate omni antennas at home or a mobile rig with an Arrow Antenna would work FB.  Remember, its "the satellite for everyone."

Like 33 dB!  So if you do it with 5W into UO-14 you need 10,000 W to do
it with P3D!  But P3D does have GAIN antennas where as UO-14 does not.
But this still only makes up a fraction of the difference...
