AO-7 missing




AO7 is not missing it is just weaker today then it has been the last few
days when I listened this morning.

I heard my signal and one other.


I have listened to several hams on AO7 and reading some of the comments on
this bbs where some hams have mentioned using 30-50 watts to input the
satellite and a 10 element or more antenna.

THIS HAS ALWAYS BEEN A 10 WATT SATELLITE!!!!!!!

Since some hams got use to using 100 watts on AO 10, AO13, and now assume
that all satellites need this power.

They do not.

LEO (low earth orbiting) satellites need only 10 to operate.
