RE: FM Satellite Etiquette



If you don't want to work anyone...now if you want to get one or two
contacts, go for at least 1500 Watts ERP.  Get yourself some hardline, all
the mods possible for your rig, pre-amps mast mounted are a must, and, of
course, a linear capable of capturing the sats no matter who else might want
to give it a try.  This will soon make you eligible for the fabulous "Hi
Jim, Hi George" 5000 times award!  Good luck and happy frustration!

Five watts into a rubber-duck should work just fine.
