2nd East Coast pass

I guess I've been out of the loop too long...today was the first day I heard 
a speech processor on FM....and all the time I thought FM was used to produce 
a more natural signal....needless to say, power was might today.....but there 
was definitely a lot of "wasted" dead air (from collisions I suppose)....lets 
see...if 50% of a 15 minute pass is unusable because of dead air, and the rest 
of the pass is dominated by erps of over 50 watts...that leaves the satellite 
available to what percentage of it's supporters?

There's my Amsat number here somewhere.....
