Wonderful, only drawback is that 160m isn't allocated to the Amateur Satellite Service ;-)

Of course that's true of all the LF allocations. There was an opportunity a few years ago to fly a 136 kHz payload with a 1 km long antenna but the lack of Amateur Satellite Service allocations made it a non-starter.

BTW does anyone know if there are any papers relating to the Amateur Satellite Service being discussed at this weeks IARU Region 2 Conference in Mexico ?
