Fw: Amsat downconverter



I received the following reply regarding the Parabolic Amsat Mode S
downconverter.  Including the downconverter, bias tee, and shipping the
total is SEK 2255 or $237.40.  This does not include bank charges to wire
funds to the Parabolic bank account.  I thought this might be of interest to
prospective Mode S converter buyers (like me).
