Judging from you many articulate posts Domenico I would never guess you are 80.  I keep a separate file in my computer called "Domenico" to maintain a knowledge base.  May you last until the next HEO, your expertise is invaluable.  I think AO-7 will out live all of us.

Hi Dee, NB2F 

AO40 died 8 years ago and following DB2OS indication the possibility to 
launch P3E fall into 2018 and since I am 80 years old I don't know if I will 
see or not P3E in good brain shape or with many senior moments or if I 
will be died at all at that time.

If I have to suggest someone to dedicate his time and invest money in a 
satellite station I will suggest to him to go in HF and not satellite at

We have lost not only the best HEO satellite i.e. AO40 but we are loosing 
the FM LEO satellite too but just now the LEO satellite VO-52 so that the 
satellite activity was nice until it lasted because the future in my opinion 
with only the old FMing OSCAR-7 is not bright at all...(sobsob)
