RE: Fw: Field Day Satellite rules



Speaking as the satellite station manager for a consistently top-rated
Field Day team (K0GQ, class 2a, 11th place for 2004 and 2003):
We avoid the FM birds.  When we were attempting them, we rarely, if
ever, were successful on them.  The past couple of years, we
concentrated our efforts on AO7, FO29, and now, we'll be using HAMSat.
The amount of effort is much less, the payoff is much greater. Even if
the ARRL rules limited FM satellites to one QSO, it still wouldn't be
worth the aggravation.

How so?  100 points is not worth trying?, but
going for 10 Satellite QSO's and 110 points
is worth blocking out 10 other FD sites?
