"good" is a relative term...   Can I make a request...
THis is a satellite Special Interest Group.  Can we try to encourage all
posters to either state power levels in ERP (Effective Radiated Power)
...OR... in WATTS and always state the gain of the antenna or if you dont
know that, then what type antenna it is.   WIthout one or the other, such
statements are not very useful and may be missleading to newcomers.

Just a thought...
