Re: ISS for Field Day



Gentleman and Ladies,

The answer is quite SIMPLE....
Work 1 station on each bird, then QUIT.
"Gentleman's Agreement"!
You already got your 100 bonus points!
Give some others a chance, and QSY somewhere else on our Amateur bands. 160 
meters to 10 GHZ or wherever your fancy is...
No need for PILE-UPS on the satellites!

73, and hope to work you on FD!
We will be running N6IJ
