Nice sentiment, but what about those of us who operate free from the
shackles of our shack computers, and/or use older equipment?

It will probably be _years_ before I am able to use computer Doppler
compensation.  The computing requirements aren't far off (hopefully will
have a laptop soon - surplus to some company's needs), but won't have one of
those fancy (read expensive) satellite rigs for years to come.

We need to look at low cost radio hardware as well, IMHO.  That's going to
be the real barrier for me in the long run.
