Man is Ham Radio getting screwed up as a group...  MINE MINE MINE... your not 
smart enough to understand my design... BUG OFF I did the work....  

did it every occur? if your call is on the boards, if you publish the design 
that you in effect tell the world this layout is mine...  this design is 
mine? many people cheaply copyright things just by publishing... it does show 
prior work....

 Ya sure there might be someone who would copy it and remove your info, and 
when everyone saw it was your design what do you think would happen to the 
credibility to the one claiming it as theirs? 

so if I understand this right.... all you "REAL DESIGNERS" wink wink nudge 
nudge secret handshake will "Keep them only for the real designers, it keeps 
the level of technology high, and the future satellite better :o)"

Great!   then you good old boys should fund it yourself....

  I'm sorry but with an attitude such as yours I would suggest a new 
organization should be founded... one that the members donate to, and then 
get maybe a Surrey or a small Sat company to build a sat with just what the 
donaters want... a simple FM Leo or a mode b bird or a HEO, no wheels, no GPS 
, no extra packages that some designer wanted to try out.. it might cost the 
same or more, heck it might cost less but at least it would be the members 
Sat and they could feel like they were part of it...

    and let you elitist snob nosed designers fund your own  stuff...
all you seem to want from us rabble is our money....

Rant mode off
