Re: Right-sizing a sat

I would like to point out that the $1500. VHF/UHF multimode is now
around $700. e.g. IC706MKIIG, FT100, and FT817, and includes HF.
This does NOT get you full-duplex, but I think with reasonable
computer control, this should be somewhat less important.

Also, KM6EP gave a presentation at the NCDXC showing pseudo-sats* that
middle-schoolers had built, and mockups of cubesats and their
launcher.  I'm not sure of the power budget, but certainly the volume
and cost look reasonable.
