Re: SDR Prototype transponders

The RS birds had about 50 kHz or so of transponder bandwith, so 45 kHz is
comparable to (arguably) the best Mode A transponders flown. These
transonders were rarely crowded.

We need more linear birds. Even with the 45 kHz bandwidth there will be lots
more QSOs than the 1 that the FM birds allow. DOn't mean to flame FM birds,
they have their place, but they only scratch the surface of what satellite
transponders can do.  - Duffey
