Re: 10mtr and Galileo



Galileo transmits on 1260-1300 MHz and 1215-1300 MHz is now allocated to
global positioning systems (up to 5 of them). Amateur transmissions can
desense the earth-based receivers. Tests on U.S. GPS receivers showed that a
1W EIRP CW signal 10 km away would cause inteference. It would be better if
1260-1270 MHz was a downlink for amateur satellites.
