AO7 FM'ing



Use the lowest power to get the best downlink..
I wk AO10 The Same way..
As long as the QRO stations are around you will get fm'ing..
Think abt it.
The solar panels have only abt 35watts of power,less now i'm sure..
The less power taken by the transponder to re-transmit the better..
I think this bird has shown new ops the fun that can be had by 
mode A & B transponders..Like RS12/13?
Why not send Amsat France $20.00 each who have wks thru AO7 
so far or have even heard the beacon..
They then can put one up say at 1800km.
They then can use French made components which i'm sure won't 
fail...
Think abt it.How many Sats are up there built by France..
Remember IDFIX??
This is my opinion.
