Re: Drake 2880's - Not an order request!



Hi Mark,

No this isn't an order request, just a note to say thanks!

If you're expecting 100 units, and have orders for 250+, ... and even if
that only translates to another 40 stations really capturing telemetry on S
band, ... then I'll be on cloud nine!

At the moment we only have about about 4 stations in North America actively
capturing telem and sending it in to the AMSAT archive, ... and on most days
only 2!

Many thanks for really kick starting Mode S in North America!

Cheers
Paul, VP9MU
AMSAT-BDA
