And then when those "greener pastures" become polluted, what shall we
do? Cut our losses and run? And again after that?
I'm fairly new to the satellite game and even though I never got to
enjoy AO-40, I got some S-band equipment for AO-51 as well as
anticipation of future use.
Seems to me instead of running away from them every time we need to be
using our technical expertise to overcome interference sources on our
I don't have the equipment to make any kind of test so I'll have to
take the design team's word that S band will be unusable but this
business of just running away
all the time makes me sick to my stomach.
I do appreciate the effort of the volunteers though and I'm sure they
don't get thanks often enough so once again, thanks gents, I think it is
appreciated by most of us even if it doesn't always seem like it.
