RE: Possible video over analog sats?

Hehehe. :-)  This is an issue though.  If there's free space at the time, I
don't see any harm done.  Like my suggestion of trying to relay 1200 bps
packets via the SO-35 parrot late in a VK pass, when no one else seems to be
using the bird.   No harm done if no one's around.

Ideally, one would use the digital systems in the longer run, but this might
be a simple test bed, before he moves onto real bandwidths and more suitable
gear. :-)

Indeed!  Or come to VK on a perigee pass, it's likely to be quiet down here
(as it is, you'd probably get away with it on any of the linear birds down
here most passes).

Makes sense to me.
