Greetings from pat n2oeq

I have been looking forward to the launch of P3E which I thought was going to be this year.
I am concerned about the germans use of the SDR technology over william Liejanier's transponder design.
I am of the belief that signal processing presents a loss in the path, please correct me if I'm wrong.
Williams Hamsat transponder is excellant and made me very interested in P3E.
Besides making the voice unnatural, are other modes allowed through the SDR transponder?
Does the Helaps system compensate for the loss?
I'm of the Keep it simple discipline as once its up there nothing can be done to fix it.
