R: go ahead for P3-E and P5-A

Dear Peter DB2OS,

Tanks to you,to Karl and to all of you in  AMSAT-DL BOD  for this
important decision.

We,satellite users have now a new hope to continue our microwave
experimentation and operation in a new and succesfull future.

Many of us where ready on S band uplink, C band uplink and X band
downlink for AO40

Many of us will be now patient in waiting P3-E with confidence because
many of us are now confident to use our  microwave equipments with
the new satellite in a near bright future.

It was only the confidence to help many of us to overcome the
psychological gap and deep frustration  in waiting all P3 satellites
between  many years in our life now from 1980, 83, 88 and 2000

Go ahead !

73" de i8CVS Domenico

>                 "Phase 3-E" and "Phase 5-A"

> Two or three years earlier P3-E to be launched in an orbit around
> Earth is expected to continue the successful series of AMSAT-
> Phase 3 satellites. The main task of P3E is to serve as
> communication platform for the nearly 2 million radio amateurs
> worldwide. They constitute a network for further exploration of the
> so called "uncoordinated multiple access", to provide simultaneous
> and freely available service to a large number of groundstations.
> Using existing technology and implementing the results of the
> member's survey, several transponders on frequencies between
> 145 MHz and 10 GHz are planned for P3E. Details will be fixed in a
> design and payload meeting in the second half of 2002.
> Additionally the P3-E spacecraft will be an important test bed for
> some technology needed for the Mars mission. Work on the P3-
> bus has been started and a number of modules are already under
> construction.
