Re: Special Bulletin - new satellite



its a bit pointless saying "shame we dont have a mode b on ao-40" when it
did have the capability, yet (to what ive read) either broke on launch or
blown up when using the rocket on it.

and looking at http://www.amsat-dl.de/journal/adlj-p3d.htm . u/v might work,
as the v-tx apperent says its needs more tests.

also :).
if it did ever change to that, what would the signals be like? would they be
stronger or very weak? if they were very weak, you would have people leaving
it who cant afford a preamp or better antenna's.

the only reason i spent the £100 odd quid on a downconverter was the simple
fact that it was to receive another band, not waste money on 2m or 70cms :).

my thoughts anyways :P
Speak to you later.
