Re: RE: Newbie Q & A



why not, say to people, use fo-20 and other transponder sats, and leave the
fm ones to new people, qrp or mobile people.

ok, there will be no way to check if it is being used as ive said, but
considering, personally, the the fuji sats are the only ones i bother using
due to it being a transponder. and 14 and 27 are always packed.

even if it was just tryed for say a week, just too see what happends, it
would be interesting to see :).

plus, i thought that was the point of fm sats, to get new people, low power
and mobile users into working the sats.

worth a try isnt it :)
Speak to you later.
