Re: AMSAT has a SECRET: why not 10m instead of V band



Laura, I think I actually agree with you. I have been a ham for 14 years
now, and was 13 when I got my novice license. I have seen my share of
crotchety old farts, especially here in God's Waiting Room (Florida). When I
stopped attending local club meetings a few years ago, I had never not been
the youngest ham in the room. Satellite is one of the few aspects of this
hobby that still has the ability to enthrall a young mind. No longer is the
prospect of interesting chats with another continent or exciting technical
coolness the sole domain of ham radio. You can do all this on the internet
faster, cheaper, and more reliably.

We must not rest on our laurels or I won't have anyone left to talk to when
I'm 60, or a frequency on which to do it.

Drew, KO4MA
