Re: Right-sizing a sat [was: Antennas on the bird]

You are dead right.The gummint took a third of 70cms away from amateur use
from part of the country and it appears only a matter of time before the
rest follows.No fanfare,no debate, just taken away.Spectrum is now worth big
money, billions.As soon as someone with a big enough check book says 'I want
amateur band X', guess what, they are gonna get it.Being the 'traditional
occupier' will count for nothing.
