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 
band allocations.
 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.
