Re: Pro FM birds!



We could call such a satellite Skipsat. The deviation would have to be kept
small so that it does not cause bleeding. The power would have to be low so
that it does not blow the windows out. Operators would have to run big power
so that they don't get walked on. Radios would have to be fitted with
sliders to tune your good buddies in. The foot warmer would have to be on
all the time so that they don't call you a mud duck. AM would work better
because it swings more than FM.

I think a more appropriate call would be:

"Breaker skipsat for radio check"

N4IP
