Re: AO-40: RUDAK is On!!



Are there still plans to load digipeater and PACSAT software onto RUDAK? How
much power will now be allocated to downlinks?

I was planning on building an S-band helix antenna this weekend and need to
know how much gain will be required for digital modes. The 1999 Handbook
states that a G/T of 0.53/Kelvin is required for an S-band analog downlink
and implies that 6 dB more gain is required for digital modes.  Is this
still correct?
