Re: [psk31] PSK31 Satellite Uplink on 10m (final plan?)

Hi Bob es all:
I printed all the emails of the last couple of days on PSK satellite and
read them as a digest.
Two things jumped out at me as threads.
1. Frequency allocation .
2. Power used on PSK.
The 1st item, freq, seems to have solved itself through discussion.It seems
,subject to input from the very last from Bob B, that 28.124-28.128 is THE
PLACE. (?)
As I read about the power some PSK ers'  are using, I thought of my
questions to this forum in the last couple of weeks about "ghost sigs"
Way back when,  two and a half years ago when I started on PSK I never
noticed these "ghost sigs". I felt like a pariah when in my brag tape I
announced my 25 watts. I have seen a lot of sigs in excess of 100 watts. No
wonder the ghosts are coming out.  It seems to me, high power could reak
havoc on a satellite.
I'll participate in your survey of 10m band usage with interest Bob.
