Re: Satellite Idea



In 1964, OSCAR III had a linear transponder that translated a 50 kHz slice
of spectrum at 144.1 MHz to 145.9 MHz so it is technically possible at wider
spacings. The problem on 2 meters today is that there is only 200 kHz of
spectrum allocated to the Amateur Satellite service.
