RE: FM Satellite Etiquette question....



Hi Kevin,
I´m a QRP lover. I always work  the FM birds with nothing but my handheld
and a dual band whip. I´m frustrated with the big-gun stations so in many
passes I can not complete any contact. I think that 2W in a whip are enough
to work the FM sats then, I don´t know why many stations use "megawatt
stations".
73 from Spain.
Pedro, EB4DKA.
