Re: Eagle without mode S

It's particularly disappointing when some of us have donated hundreds, or 
even thousands of dollars to the project based, in part, on the proposed 
frequencies for the various up- and  downlinks and the corresponding 
equipment we have invested in.  Kinda feels like "bait and switch" at this 
point, but I DO understand the technical reasoning behind the decision. 
Probably only a relatively small percentage of us would be able to get a 
usable downlink signal thanks to the various 2.4 GHz QRM sources.
