It is a shame it's not more popular. I have listened to the downlink
and it's a good signal. My apartment QTH makes it very difficult to
set up to use it, but most hams with a full home satellite station
should be able to use it very easily.

Maybe an award for working several different stations on it would help
increase the popularity?
