Re: Pro FM birds!

Gave a small talk on the ease of using APRS and PCSAT/ISS a couple
of weeks ago to a small local club. As a result I see a few of the
persons in attendance using ISS and PCSAT now.
Simple equipment requirements snagged a few more ops and potential
AMSAT/TAPR members.
ARES EC dropped me an email a couple of days ago, wants me to give
a talk/demo about APRS/ARES/PCSAT/ISS possibilites and use(s)
Like it or not FM Sat's are a great intro in AMSAT and other fields,
and thus seem the logical choice when rebuilding AMSAT/TAPR membership.
Lots of room for other sats as well, but lets get the interest and
numbers up with the LEO and easier FM stuff first.
Just my two cents.
