Re: Cubesats and FM satellites



Hear hear...
I don`t think your englisch is bad Ib.

Since 14 is gone , it`s more difficult to keeps those who were intrested,
`in the picture`.
They are not so sure that if they build a sat rig , that they can use it.
By letting them `taste` 14 with an omni stick , i had an easy way to `blow
up` the SAT fire.
I still miss 14 a lot.....
