Re: Special Bulletin - new satellite

I don't want to argue, but I will stand in favor of it.  If you go out among
the general ham population this is what they want.  If we force something
else upon them they will leave.  There is definitely a great deal of support
for this in the U.S.  The U.S. is a big part of AMSAT-NA, so it is only
appropriate that this be taken on.

I was under the impression there many advances to made and the FM was just
part of the package.  I thought the bird is to have space for some cool
digital stuff too..

I used to be anti-FM satellite, but I have converted.  My conversion is
based on the fact there is hardly anyone to talk to on the other birds.  I
work the FO birds on occasion as well as AO-40, but the QSOs on these birds
are much harder to come by.  There is at least one new guy a week to work on
the FM birds.

My Opinion,
