Re: Re: major AMSAT outreach project


I think it is the responsibility of the ground station to have a good 
receiver, antenna and preamp. Yeah, 10 watts would make it "easier" but 
where is the challenge?
Try ISS. You can do packet or repeater with a HT if skilled enough to know 
how to make it work!
Like fishing... IF you "knew" you would ALWAYS have a big fish on your line 
when you dropped it in the water, it would become boring pretty fast! 
(unless you had something to gain from it)

Amateur Radio is an adventure....
It's only a hobby.... (And a Service)
