[amsat-bb] HF Satellite Transponder

I bought a MOT spectra 20w 900-MHz FM rig for about $50 on 
e-bay.  The seller programmed it for my desired ham frequencies 
(about 8 channels) for free. Mainly use 927.5 MHz simplex.

If you want to operate CW/SSB on 902 or 903 MHz call DEMI with credit 
card in hand.

What is hard is to find very many station on these bands.

I have my 900 station driving a MOT amp outputting 60w to 18-element 
loop-yagi (google Directive Systems).

So the hardest part of mw is convincing anyone to move up here.

I am QRV from 500-KHz to 10-GHz.
hint - using a solder iron helps

Getting above 1 GHz isn't easy.  Actually, 900 isn't that easy,
either.  In fact, I'm looking for a clean IC910H with the L-band
module so I can do just as you suggest.  :-)
