Re: Excuse the ignorance, but...



I guess I should clarify. 12/13 are both capable of Mode A, and 12 has been
on in Mode A for quite a while , until this week when it was switched to K.
13 was turned on at the same time this week in Mode T. Remember 12 and 13
are on the same physical satellite.

RS 15 is mode A, but entry level it is not. I can rarely hear the beacon,
and have never heard myself with 20 elements and 160 watts on the uplink and
a preamp and tribander on the downlink. I think it's fair to disregard it as
a entry level sat.

I think one of the recent university satellites had a mode A transponder,
but it never worked.
