Don't guess it ! Let's measure it !

Dear all,

It is very nice to hear successful reports of QSO via AO-40.
On the other hand, there are unsuccessful reports also.

Well, may I suggest a worldwide experiment to measure
real link-budget ?

My proposal is:

1. Let's make a silent-day on AO-40, i.e. no QRV except
assigned stations.
2. The assigned stations should have calibrated EIRP
and G/T performance of his/her system.
3. A couple of stations per each continent will be assigned.
4. Unified test procedure should be defined.
5. General ham stations will be able to join the measurement
on receiving only.

This might be a kind of ZRO test. Your consideration will 
be appreciated.
