RE: History Channel Modern Marvels : Satellites



Yeah, after watching the entire program I was disappointed in how the amateur
radio ops and the amateur satellite ops were completely left out.  It seemed
like the last five to ten minutes of the program were a little rushed, as
well, so maybe they didn't have time to talk about amateurs or commercial
birds (as they seemed to focus on military birds).  Oh well...

Thanks for the heads up. I enjoyed watching that even though it didn't
include anything about ham sats. The history and the timeline of development
of various pieces of technology was quite interesting.
