Hi Peter,DB2OS

While the S/X flight module is goin on what is the planned power for 
the X transmitter when it is configured as a transponder ?

What is the gain of the X band dish of P3E ?

The X band TX can be seen in your P3E documentation  while Michael
OH2AUE is working on it and the X band dish is depicted over one
leg of the bird but no data are available.

For AO40 a solid state 16 watt pep GaAsFET linear amplifier and
alternatively a 50 watt pep TWT amplifier where installed with a 20 dBi 
RHCP circular horn so that our downink calculations for AO40 where 
based on the average of +35 dBW pep EIRP

It should be very nice to have the above information to verify the 
new downlink requirements for the X band of P3E
