Re: RE: Fw: Frequency to be used in space for the golf ball



In retrospect, if the goal is to have a commercial message received by
scanners, is the 137mHz band or 150 mHz... both of which are currently in
satellite use...

Some scanners will not tune 137 so 150 would be a logical choice...

So many satellites...so little space...
