That is a great idea!  Actually, I did a similar article for the 2001
Symposium (specifically looked at equipment for AO-40 and basic station
requirements).  If you can get good participation, document your findings
and submit to Amsat as either an article for next year's Symposium or a
Journal article.  Should be a very interesting read.
