Be or not to be! That is the question
You pointed out the whole problem Steve. Actually we only (I know it's better
than nothing the AMSAT-NA moto) have LEO sats and by definition a LEO sat only
offer a limited time pass of between 10 to 20 minutes (at the best). If you
added to this some of them are only a one channel system eg:AO-51 you are stuck
with a very limited span of options.
If you added the human factor on top of this you ended up with questions as
your one "HOW IS THIS EVEN POSSIBLE" and it is mainly related to this human
Look around you and beyond you will understand how humans react and act often
illogically.Many are acting as they feel they are alone on this planet...I just
posted a message showing exactly what you refer too but on a different plane of
discussion not related to what we usually read here.
Some agree some not but what we are missing actually is only common sense and a
HEO. This will not solved all our problems but it will at least show that we
are making a step forward instead of backward.
