One Reason why AO-7 might be "FMing" (from 1979)



Quoting K4TWJ, in "OSCAR: The Ham Radio Satellites"; printed 1979:

"The AGC system of Oscar 7 is slightly more active than that of OSCAR 6, 
which means stations running excessively high power (over 200 watts in the 
case of Oscar 7)...reduce the satellites sensitivity for other stations. No 
station should run more than 100 watts ERP. Presently, this situation is 
being aggravated by stations running extremely high ERP.  Additional measures 
..... will be included in the Phase III Satellites (to) discourage high power 
activities."

Thus came LEILA.......
