Re: Musings about 1.25 meters



Several people have commented that 220 is not an international band and is
not allocated for Amateur Satellite use.

Agreed, a satellite cannot TRANSMIT on 220 MHz, but is is possible to
prohibit a command RECEIVER on that band?  Admittedly, only North American
command stations could be used, but there might be other advantages.  435
and 1269 MHz are shared with RADARs that have interfered with command
uplinks.  Depending on 220 usage in other countries, this might be less of a
problem.

Just a thought,
