You might be right.  I still have some way to go before I'm up and running on
L/S, but it'll be good when I can sit back and work the world on the fruits of
my labour (and AMSAT's!).  I'm enjoying the opportunity to home brew for a
change. :)

Well, my costs are relatively small, so far only played with freebie MMDS
converters.  I eventually want to build a decent 2400 MHz transverter and
matching preamp.

No flames from me, but I'll stand by with the fire blanket. ;-)
