I think that's what I said - novel. Experimental.

I'm fairly new (8 months) to this list, but since the SAREX people seem to 
jump on others who comment or cross posted from/to SAREX maybe QEX should 
consider the same?  After alll, the SDR-1000 isn't sat capable, so why the 
discussion at all?  I was merely commenting on the technology, not how much 
fun it might be.  I like cooking, but I doubt this list wants me to post my 
newest chicken recipe.
