   you haven't been on the BB or Amsat long enough to know some of the history 
  when ao7 woke up there was a big push to be able to control the sat... part 
of the regs say  that a sat must be controllable... Larry was hot to trot to 
get a big huge amp and try and control the sat... there was some limited 
success I believe in commanding it... plus there was a issue if it was still 
legal to use it on mode B... Larry wanted to try and shut it down and control 

anyway... others including myself argued with Larry about this... 

bottom line is, Larry feels that ao7 will cause the destruction of AMSAT  in 
general because it randomly transmits...  

supposedly Larry will show back up after 5 years on the BB and post messages 
that myself and others posted and  show us how his predictions came true...

I think we have 2 or 3 years to go before doom sets in...

bottom line... do what most do, ignore Larry when he is in one of his moods...
