Both P3E and Eagle will have 50w class amplifiers on V band.  This will 
be loud.   The 50w amplifier for S band with a 4 vacuum dielectric patch 
array delivering 14 dBi will be loud on Eagle.  I am uncertain what the 
plans are for P3E on the amplifier but the usual antenna is a Helix.  
The new DL site will have details probably.
