Hi Robert, G8ATE
I agree completely with you because following the World Administrative Radio
Conference Geneva 1979 the definition of "Amateur-Satellite-Service" adopted
as well by the IARU Region 1-2 and 3 is the following:
NOC 3108 84ATA Spa2
A radiocommunication service using space stations on earth satellites for
the same purposes as those of the Amateur Service.
As far I understand an Amateur Radio Satellite should comply with the above
definition and so at this time I hope only in P3E

> I follow with interest the future launch of so called Amateur Radio
Satellites where in fact Delfi-C3 is probably the only one to carry a true
Amateur radio payload the others , so far as I am concerned, just happen to
use frequencies in the Amateur bands. It looks good on paper when we can say
look at all these satellites on Amateur frequencies but this begs the
question what is the true definition of an AMATEUR RADIO SATELLITE???
