Re: Hamsat FM



We all know FM works on transponders, MOST of us know it's not welcome because it hogs power. FM is 100% duty cycle, and steals downlink power from polite users on SSB and CW. 

Please leave FM to the FM satellites, and SSB and CW to the transponders.

Greetings from patrick n2oeq

Short note to say I tried FM on hamsat tonight.
I tried to avoid sideband signals so if anyone was offended; sorry

Downlink signal was strong on dual band FM rig but audio in headphones was
light.

I will try again up the band around 145.910

No flames please. 73, pat
